A VITAL PART OF OUR CHRISTIAN LIFE
About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray.
Frank Laubach wrote of how, in his personal experiment of moment-by-moment submission to the will of God, the fine texture of his work and life experience was transformed. In January of 1930 he began to cultivate the habit of turning his mind to Christ for one second out of every minute.8
After only four weeks he reported, “I feel simply carried along each hour, doing my part in a plan which is far beyond myself. This sense of cooperation with God in little things is what so astonishes me, for I never have felt it this way before. I need something, and turn round to find it waiting for me. I must work, to be sure, but there is God working along with me.”9
God raised Frank Laubach from a lonely missionary post in the Philippines to the status of Christian world statesman and spokesman for Christ. But he was forever and foremost Christ’s man and always knew that his brilliant ideas and incredible energy and effectiveness derived from his practice of constant conscious interface with God.
