Iron Sharpens Iron

The more I reflect and the more I pray, the more life narrows down to one point-- What am I being for Christ, what am I doing for Him? Why do I tell you this? Because the voice of a fellow-traveler always stimulates his brother-pilgrim; what one finds and speaks of and rejoices over, sets the other upon determining to find too. God has been very good to you, as well as to me, but we ought to whisper to each other now and then, "Go on, step faster, step surer, lay hold on the Rock of Ages with both hands." You never need to be afraid to speak such words to me. I want to be pushed on, and pulled on, and coaxed on.

- Elizabeth Prentiss, letter to a friend, Dec., 1870
