It was a week-night prayer meeting. There had been bitter opposition to the gospel in the village, and although many attended the meetings from other areas, very few locals attended. A church leader suggested they should go to prayer, and thirty or so moved into the home of a friendly farmer. Prayer was so hard, and about midnight Duncan Campbell turned to the local blacksmith, who had been silent so far, and said, "I feel the time has come when you ought to pray." The man prayed for about half an hour, because in revival time doesn't matter, and then drew his prayer to a close with a bold challenge: "God, your honour is at stake, and I challenge you to keep your covenant engagements." At that moment, Duncan Campbell recalls, "After they prayed, the whole granite house shook like a leaf," and while one elder thought of an earth tremor, Duncan was reminded of Acts 4:31.
