Ann Branson (1808-1891) was one of the very last, true ministers (having been prepared, called, and used of the Lord) in a greatly reduced and sadly degenerate Society. Her deepest cry to the Lord, from the days of her childhood, was that “His eye would not pity, nor His hand spare” till He had thoroughly cleansed her heart, and made her a useful vessel in His house. Humbling herself before God and men, she was exalted by the Lord as a powerful and prophetic minister, one of the few in her day who stood in the purity and power of the original Quakers, even while all around her the 200 year old lampstand of the Society of Friends slowly and tragically burned out.
Dearest Lord, remember my affliction, and enable me to say in deed and in truth, Your kingdom come, Your will be done in me, and by me, and through me, unworthy worm as I am. Oh let not Your hand spare, nor Your eye pity me, until You cause me to surrender my will in all things unto Your holy will!- Ann Branson
