Praying for Those in Your Charge

Christopher Dock died this week in 1770. Nothing too unusual about that. But what is unusual is the way he died. On his knees praying! What a way to go! tells the story.

When Christopher Dock did not come home from school one night, people went looking for him. There he was, dead–on his knees in prayer. That fit his character. Every evening he prayed through the roll of his students, asking the Lord to forgive any wrong or neglect he had done any one of them and to help him do better the following day…

May God give us the same spirit of prayer for those people in our lives.
