Deeply worried, LeTourneau prayed, “Don’t let me down now, Lord. I’ve got all this work, and if you let me down, I’m ruined.”
Right then he saw his mistake and hastened to say, “Lord, I didn’t mean that. I’m not asking You not to let me down. I’m asking you to help me not let you down. I’m not asking to use You. I’m asking you to use me.”*
