Prayer: for Help to Pray
In Dr. Ryland's memoir of Andrew Fuller is the following anecdote. At a conference at Sobam, a friend of slender abilities being asked to pray, knelt down, and Mr. Fuller and the company with him, when he found himself so embarrassed, that, whispering to Mr. Fuller, he said, 'I do not know how to go on.' Mr. F. replied in a whisper, 'Tell the Lord so.' The rest of the company did not hear what passed between them, but the man taking Mr. Fuller's advice began to confess his not knowing how to pray as he ought to pray, begging to be taught to pray, and so proceeded in prayer to the satisfaction of all the company.
