Elizabeth Prentiss - more love to thee

Elizabeth Prentiss was born in Portland, Maine, in 1818, the daughter of a well-known revival preacher, Dr. Edward Payson.

As a young girl, she was present in services where there was a powerful awareness of the holiness of God; she witnessed scenes of corporate conviction of sin and, as a youngster, she was committed to praying for the conversion of her friends. Although her father died just before her tenth birthday, his abiding legacy to Elizabeth was two-fold: a passion for holiness, and a conviction that surrender to the sovereign will of God is the way to real peace.
