Best tracts for witnessing

  |  0 Comments

Once a lady in Cardiff, South Wales, asked him what he would recommend as the best tracts for witnessing. “Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John,” he responded, with no further elaboration. “Folks are always wanting promises to stand on,” he used to say. When one young man asked him, “Can you give me a promise to stand on?” Wigglesworth answered by placing his Bible on the ground and saying, “Stand on that.”

Put up your hands…

  |  0 Comments

The moment he entered the pulpit, Wigglesworth would say, “All those who want something from God, put up your hand.” Hands would go up all over. Then he would say, “All those who are going to be blessed, put the other hand up.” Nearly everybody would put up their other hand and have both hands in the air. Next he would say, “Keep those hands raised; and if you are going to take the blessing with you when you go home, stand up.” Obeying, almost everyone would stand with both hands still raised. Waves of glory would then sweep the congregation. The atmosphere was always electric. A multitude of needs were met during those times.

Sitting on the bench

  |  0 Comments

Down the hill from Wigglesworth’s home was the beautiful Manningham Park, a public park with lovely flower gardens. I cannot pass by that place today without remembering Wigglesworth and the people he blessed there. When he was home, it was usual for him to go to the park and sit for a while. Often someone else would sit down on the same bench. Without speaking, Wigglesworth imparted something to whoever was sitting there. If the person was unsaved, as was often the case, Wigglesworth would pray silently for him to come under conviction and get saved. Whatever the need might be, Wigglesworth could perceive it. He had no need to question any one; people were drawn to him by the Spirit. Before long, almost without realizing it, a person would be pouring out his heart to Smith. Everyone went away blessed. Wigglesworth always said, “If you don’t minister life, you will minister death and leave folks worse off than when you found them.”

No more than 30 mins

Someone once asked Wigglesworth if he regularly spent long seasons in prayer. He answered, “I don’t very often spend more than a half hour in prayer at one time, but I never go more than a half hour without praying.” Prayer was his life. It was what he liked best of all. It was one of the secrets of his power.

Reading the bible on a train

  |  0 Comments

On another occasion, Wigglesworth boarded a train at Bradford to travel to London. He selected a corner seat. Eventually, five more people joined him in the compartment. As was his custom, he took out his Testament and began to read and pray silently. He never spoke a word to his fellow travelers. About thirty miles away from London, he went to the rest room. As he was making his way back to the compartment, the man who had been sitting next to him said, “I don’t know what it was, but when I sat next to you, a terrible fear gripped me. I was afraid I was going to die. What was it?” Wigglesworth said, “Come back into the compartment.” All the others there said they had experienced the same feeling. Wigglesworth explained to them about conviction and the way of salvation. They all knelt on the floor of the compartment and accepted the Lord.
