William Carey, who is called the ‘Father of Modern Missions,’ served the Lord in India for many years. He gradually became very concerned about the attitude of his son, Felix.
The young man had promised to become a missionary, but he reneged on his vows when he was appointed ambassador to Burma by the Queen of England.
Carey wrote to his friend, asking prayer for his son with these words:
“Pray for Felix. He has degenerated into an ambassador of the British government when he should be serving the King of Kings.”
