On this date, April 20,1718, David Brainerd was born in Haddam, Connecticut. He was missionary to the Algonquin Indians.

These are a few of my favorite quotes from David Brainerd.

“Never think that you can live to God by your own power or strength; but always look to and rely on him for assistance, yea, for all strength and grace.”

“If you hope for happiness in the world, hope for it from God, and not from the world.”

“Give yourself to prayer, to reading and meditation on divine truths: strive to penetrate to the bottom of them and never be content with a superficial knowledge.”

Give yourself to prayer
