He prayed about things as if everything depended upon the praying . . . but he worked also, as if everything depended on his working

Hudson Taylor’s son, Howard, commented on his father’s response to a dying girl. He said to a prayer group to ‘pray, while I work’ – while he gave the girl the kiss of life. ‘He prayed about things as if everything depended upon the praying . . . but he worked also, as if everything depended on his working.’

Roger Steer, J. Hudson Taylor: A Man in Christ, OMF, 1990, p.271
