Psalm 35:20 - For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

Praise God for the quiet in the land, those that quietly go about their service of God without acclaim or fanfare. Who do what they do, not to be seen of men, but to express their love for their heavenly Father. They are ever faithful to the will of God.

You have more than likely never heard of Henry Reimer, a quiet Mennonite man in his late eighties whom I discovered walking the streets of Clinton , Oklahoma distributing gospel tracts which he had written and printed out of his pension money. Every house in Clinton and Arapahoe received one. They were well written and told the testimonies of born again Mennonites and how they found Jesus.

And you have probably never heard of Conrad Carlson, an aged Swedish man who loved Jesus with all his heart. He too was in his late eighties and three days a week he walked the sidewalks of his city distributing Pentecostal Evangels , a magazine of the Assemblies of God. He attended every service at church coming in a worn and frayed suit and played his violin. He was always encouraging the young preachers.

I could go on and on about these quiet people, great prayer warriors who spent hours every day praying for the lost and for the needs of Christians. They didn't need a band wagon to jump on, in fact they avoided them. They simply went about their day quietly praying and seeking God. I am sure one of them prayed for me to get saved but I have no idea who that might be. It was one of those quiet in the land.
