Two Women Pray For Power For D.L. Moody
One day two women came up to D.L. Moody after a service. They said, “We have been praying for you.” “Why don’t you pray for the people?” he asked. “Because you need the power of the Spirit,” they said. Mr. Moody could not get this off his mind and he wrote, I began crying out for God to fill me. He withdrew, prayed, and sought it over a period of time. He writes the following: “Well, one day, in the city of New York – oh, what a day! – I cannot describe it, I seldom refer to it; it is almost too sacred an experience to name. Paul had an experience of which he never spoke for fourteen years. I can only say that God revealed Himself to me, and I had such an experience of His love that I had to ask Him to stay His hand. I went to preaching again. The sermons were not different; I did not present any new truths, and yet hundreds were converted. I would not now be placed back where I was before that blessed experience if you should give me all the world.” (Sermon Central).
