Where the world comes to study the Bible

Psalm 37:7

Abe Lincoln

Joseph Sizoo was pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington where Abraham Lincoln often attended. Among Sizoo’s most memorable moments was the day he held Lincoln’s own Bible—the same Bible from which Lincoln’s mother had read to him as a child. Sizoo remembers, “Book in my hand, I wondered where it would fall open. It opened to a page which was thumb-marked and which he must have read many times. It was the thirty-seventh Psalm...’Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.’“
