Humble walking with God is the great duty and most valuable concernment of believers. … This is better than all your preaching, all your hearing, all your private meetings, all your conferences, all your fastings. -John Owen
This, then, was the primary reason, for establishing the Orphan-House. … the first and primary object of the work was, (and still is:) that God might be magnified by the fact, that the orphans under my care are provided, with all they need, only by prayer and faith, without any one being asked by me or my fellow-labourers, whereby it may be seen, that God is FAITHFUL STILL, and HEARS PRAYER STILL.
