Helen Howarth Lemmel, an accomplished singer, song writer and author, was born November 14, 1864, in Wardle, England. Her father was a Methodist pastor and she came to this country with her family at age twelve settling in Wisconsin.
She developed a reputation as a brilliant singer, even studying private voice in Germany. She traveled widely in the Midwest during the early 1900’s, giving concerts in many churches.
Helen wrote more than 500 hymns and poems and authored a children’s book, “Story of the Bible.”
In 1918, a missionary friend gave her a tract entitled “Focused.” In it she read, “So then, turn your eyes upon Him, look full into His face and you will find that the things of earth will acquire a strange new dimness.”
“Suddenly,” she relates, “as if commanded to stop and listen, I stood still and singing in my soul and spirit was the chorus, with not one conscious moment of putting word to word to make rhyme, or note to note to make melody. The verses were written the same week, after the usual manner of composition, but none the less dictated by the Holy Spirit.”
The hymn, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” was written.
In 1961, Helen settled in Seattle, WA, where she remained active with Christian activities until she died at the age of 97.

What Does a Prayer Weigh?
A poorly dressed lady walked into the grocery store. She looked defeated. She approached the owner and humbly asked if he would let her charge a few groceries.
She quietly explained that her husband was very sick and unable to work. They had seven children and they needed food. The owner scoffed at her and asked her to leave the store.
Still thinking about her family needs, she said, “Please sir, I will bring you the money as soon as I can.” The owner told her he couldn’t give her credit because she didn’t have an account at the store.
There was another customer standing nearby who overheard their conversation. The customer approached them and said he would get whatever she needed for her family.
Reluctantly, the owner asked, “Do you have a grocery list?” “Yes, sir,” the lady replied. “Okay” he said, “put your grocery list on the scales and whatever the list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.”
The lady hesitated a moment, bowing her head. Then she reached into her purse, took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully, her head still bowed.
The eyes of the owner and the other customer went wide with amazement. The scales went down and stayed down. The owner, still staring at the scales, said, “I can’t believe it.”
The customer smiled as the owner started putting groceries on the other side of the scales. The scales didn’t balance so he continued adding more and more groceries until the scales couldn’t hold anymore.
The owner stood there in disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it in amazement. It was not a grocery list. It was a prayer that read: “Dear Lord: You know my needs. I leave this in your hands.”
The owner gave her the groceries he had gathered and stood in silence. Sometime later, the owner discovered the scales were broken.
Only God knows how much a prayer weighs.
Never underestimate the power of prayer.
