“But while I was discoursing near night... a divine influence seemed to attend what was spoken to them in a powerful manner, which caused the persons to cry out in anguish of soul, although I spoke not a word of terror; but, on the contrary, set before them the fullness and all-sufficiency of Christ’s merits, and His willingness to save all that came to Him; and thereupon pressed them to come without delay... ‘Have mercy upon me, have mercy upon me’ was the common cry.”- David Brainerd
