“March 12, 1862 – It was in November 1850, that my mind became exercised about enlarging the Orphan Work from 300 Orphans to 1000, and subsequently to 1150; and it was in June 1851, that this my purpose became known, having kept it secret for more than seven months, whilst day by day praying about it. From
the end of November 1850, to this day March 12, 1862, not one single day has been allowed to pass,
without this contemplated enlargement being brought before God in prayer, and generally more than once a day. But only now, this day, the New Orphan House No. 3 was so far advanced, that it could be opened.
Observe then, first, esteemed Reader, how long it may be, before a full answer to our prayers, even
to thousands and tens of thousands of prayers, is granted; yea, though those prayers may be believing
prayers, earnest prayers, and offered up in the name of the Lord Jesus, and though we may only for the sake of the honour of our Lord desire the answer: for I did, by the grace of God, without the least doubt and wavering look for more than eleven years for the full answer; and I sought only in this matter the glory of God.”
