QUOTE (David Brainerd) – Oct 5

October 5, 2014

English: David Brainerd (1718-1747)

“My desires seem especially to be after weanedness from the world, perfect deadness to it, and that I may be crucified to all its allurements. My soul desires to feel itself more of a pilgrim and a stranger here below, that nothing may divert me from pressing through the lonely desert, till I arrive at my Father’s house.” ~ David Brainerd

In honor of David Brainerd, an American missionary to the Delaware Indians of New Jersey, who began ministering to the Indians on this day in 1744.
