Wilhelm II

 

 

 

“Das Gebet ist der goldene Schlüssel zur Schatzkammer unseres Gottes. – Gott der Herr hat in jedes Menschenherz die Gebetsglocke hineingehängt. Doch im Sonnenschein und Glück des Lebens, wie oft hängt sie still und stumm. Wenn aber der Sturmwind der Not hervorbricht, dann hebt sie an zu klingen. Not lehrt beten.”

“Prayer is the golden key to the vault of our God. – God the Lord has hung the prayer-bell in every man’s heart. But in sunshine and happiness how often it hangs still and dumb. But
when the stormy winds of distress break forth then it begins to ring.  Adversity teaches us to pray.”

– Wilhelm II (1859-1941), Last German Emperor and Prussian King from 1888 to 1918
