A moving testimonial came from a businessman in nearby Grand Rapids, Minnesota, who wrote about the picture in a newspaper column. He concluded the column with a simple, eloquent prayer to accompany the "GRACE" picture:
"Lord, there may be many homes that are larger than mine. There may be tables groaning with food and drink in abundance. There may be riches in supplies and appointments. There may be conveniences on every hand and there may be physical assurance that tomorrow will bring still more. But, Lord, you have been with me unto this day and supplied my necessary requirements. On that assurance I rest my belief that you will bless my efforts, if I apply them to the best of my ability to carry on. I am content. Amen."
