Well . . . I rarely ever have had time alone for the past several years. Unfortunately, I had become restless for a time, desiring a prayer cabin. A place where I could go away from everything and even from those I love, to spend time alone crying out to God. However, on account of various circumstances it would be untimely to spend money on the material and spend time to build a prayer cabin. I was conflicted because I knew I should be able to attend upon the Lord without distraction, call upon His name in my heart, etc, regardless of where I was, who I was around or what was going on about me. I knew that my heart was restless. I knew that if I did the untimely and unreasonable task of erecting a prayer cabin on the property we have, that I would bring my restlessness into the cabin and all of my toil to build it would be in vain. So the other night I broke, started singing from my heart a new song; I decided to have the phone on to record it, and everyone here appreciated it. So, brother Braden added music and made a video. May the Lord bless those who listen to it.

“Reason dictates that persons who are truly noble and who love wisdom will honor and love only what is true. They will refuse to follow traditional viewpoints if those viewpoints are worthless...Instead, a person who genuinely loves truth must choose to do and speak what is true, even if he is threatened with death...I have not come to flatter you by this written petition, nor to impress you by my words. I have come to simply beg that you do not pass judgment until you have made an accurate and thorough investigation. Your investigation must be free of prejudice, hearsay, and any desire to please the superstitious crowds. As for us, we are convinced that you can inflict no lasting evil on us. We can only do it to ourselves by proving to be wicked people. You can kill us—but you cannot harm us.” From Justin Martyr's first apology 150 A.D. Martyred A.D. 160
