"The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray."

Sojourner Truth (c. 1797-1883), born into slavery as Isabella Baumfree, was an African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist.
Sojourner Truth's mother talked to her of God. From these conversations, her mind drew the conclusion that God was a great man and, being located high in the sky, could see all that transpired on the earth. She believed he not only saw but also noted down all her actions in a great book.
She desired to talk to God, but her vileness utterly forbade it and she began to wish for someone to speak to God for her. Then a space seemed opening between her and God, and she felt that if someone who was worthy in the sight of heaven would but plead for her in their own name, and not let God know it came from her, who was so unworthy, God might grant it. At length a friend appeared to stand between herself and an insulted Deity; but who was this friend? “Who are you?” she exclaimed, as the vision brightened into a form distinct, beaming with the beauty of holiness, and radiant with love.
Her whole soul was in one deep prayer that this heavenly personage might be revealed to her and remain with her. At length, after bending both soul and body with the intensity of this desire, till breath and strength seemed failing and she could maintain her position no longer, an answer came to her, saying distinctly, “It is Jesus.” “Yes,” she responded, “it is Jesus.”
Previously, she heard Jesus mentioned in reading or speaking but had received from what she heard no impression that he was any other than an eminent man, like a Washington or a Lafayette. Now he appeared to her so mild, so good, and so every way lovely, and he loved her so much! And, how strange that he had always loved her, and she had never known it! And how great a blessing he conferred, in that he should stand between her and God! And God was no longer a terror and a dread to her. In the light of her great happiness, the world was clad in new beauty, the very air sparkled as with diamonds and was redolent of heaven.
