Praying by the Wayside

A selection from a letter by Elizabeth Prentiss to Miss Eliza A. Warner, September 27, 1868:

And the praying we do by the wayside, in cars and steamboats, in streets and in crowds, perhaps keeps us more near to Christ than long prayers in solitude could without the help of these little messengers, that hardly every stop running to Him and coming back with the grace every moment needs.
