Entire city pauses for prayer even at the high tide of business–Denver Post

 

Entire city pauses for prayer even at the high tide of business.

Remarkable outburst of gospel sentiment…noonday meetings draw congregations unprecedented in numbers.

   For two hours at midday all Denver was held in a spell….The marts of trade where deserted between noon and two o’clock this afternoon, and all worldly affairs were forgotten, and the entire city was given over to mediation of higher things. The Sprit of the Almighty pervaded every nook. Going to and coming from the great meetings, the thousands of men and women radiated this Spirit which filled them, and the Colorado sunshine was made brighter by the reflected glow of the light of God shining from happy faces. Seldom has such a remarkable sight been witnessed–an entire city, in the middle of a busy weekday, bowing before the throne of heaven and asking and receiving the blessing of the King of the Universe.
