Re: George F. Pentecost--I am not related to the Pentecosts. I have no other information other than this prayer. I have a prayer book composed by many ministers. This is the prayer for October 18th. This book is "God's Minute" by 365 Eminent Clergymen and Laymen. Philadelphia, Pa. The Vir Publishing Company of London & Toronto. I was interested in the name Pentecost and decided to see if anyone was interested in George Pentecost. I decided to print this as part of your genealogy and we need prayer in times like these. Lord, teach us how to pray; for we know not how to pray as we ought. Thou hast bidden us in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, to make our requests known unto Thee. Thou hast given us so many wonderful promises in respect of prayer that we cannot but believe that prayer is the open way between us and Thee. Thou art our Father, and we trust Thee and know that Thou canst never contradict Thy love for us as manifested in the coming and living and dying of our Lord Jesus Christ. How shalt Thou not with Him freely give us all things? No withholding or even denial of our requests can make us doubt Thee. And then we remember that Thy "No" is just as real an answer to prayer as Thy "Yes," as when Thou didst say to Moses and Paul "No": and yet, later, how wonderfully Thou didst answer those seemingly unanswered prayers. Be Thou our light in darkness; our comfort in sorrow; our wisdom when we are perplexed; our strength when we are in weaknes. Our desire, is to be used of Thee. We do not want to be idle or unfruitful in Thy service, even when limited in our opportunities. Grant this our prayer, O Father, for Jesus' sake. Amen George F. Pentecost, Philadelphia, Pa. If he is related to you in anyway why not print this prayer for your notebook or better still nearby where you can say this prayer and get to know what kind of a person he was. Sincerely Anne
