Now, I’ve come to Christ when I was about the age of one of these boys here, I guess. I was about twenty years old. And I served Him all this time, and I’m fifty-two, will be fifty-three my birthday.

And I can sincerely say that I have never asked Christ sincerely for anything, that is it’s--now, that really sincerely asked Him, anything that was for right, but what He gave it to me or told me why He couldn’t do it. And then later on, I found out it was a good thing I didn’t get it. See?
