At the close of a meeting in Brownsville, one Saturday morning, a number of Jews and Jewesses came to shake hands with me, and begged me to call upon a sick Jewess right away. They said: “She is in a critical condition, and has expressed, several times, a great wish to see you.” When I reached the poor patient, I found her in a very miserable condition, a baby lying beside her and her husband holding another one in his arms. Both man and sick wife began to cry when they saw me come in, and the wife, for joy over my visit and in courteous welcome, tried to sit up in bed, but she had not the strength, and fell backward upon the pillows.
Now there were many Jews and Jewesses in the room, and the Holy Spirit constrained me to offer prayer in the presence of them all. I first explained to them in whose name I was going to pray, and who He was, and that I had the experience that God answers prayer in the blessed name of the Lord Jesus Christ. While praying, the Spirit of God took hold of these Jews present, and troubled their hearts so much that they asked me what they should do in order to obtain a good knowledge about the Messiah in whose name I prayed. I marveled at the movement of the power of the Holy Spirit upon the hearts of these men, and said in my heart, “How wonderful are thy works, O Lord!”
