It is recorded of D. L. Moody that, upon one of his journeys across the Atlantic there was a fire in the hold of the ship.
The crew & some volunteers stood in line to pass buckets of water. A friend said to Moody, "Mr. Moody, let us go to the other end of the ship & engage in prayer."
The common-sense evangelist replied, "Not so, sir; we stand right here & pass buckets & pray hard all the time."
How like Moody this was! He believed that prayer & work were the two hands of the one person; that they should never be separated.
