Robert Murray McCheyne 1813-1843 Robert Murray McCheyne was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, May 21, 1813. He taught himself the Greek alphabet at the age of four. He later distinguished himself as a student of Edin- burgh University.         McCheyne became pastor of St. Peter's Church of Dundee, Scotland (Presbyterian), in 1836, after being li- censed to preach by the Presbytery of Annan on July 1, 1835. At age 24, he became a member of a mission of inquiry to study the best means of evangelizing the Jews, and visited Palestine for this purpose. While there, he became ill and devoted much of his time to praying for his flock.         And, the famous revival in Dundee began in his church under the ministry of William C. Burns. It continued under McCheyne. The whole city was moved. No less than 39 prayer meetings were held weekly in connection with this church, of which five were carried on wholly by children.         McCheyne died of typhus March 25, 1843. He is buried in the churchyard of St. Peter's. His monument contains the words: "...who died in the thirtieth year of his age and the seventh of his ministry, walking closely with God, an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity, he ceased not day and night to labor and watch for souls, and was honored by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness and to the path of life."         One of the most notable characteristics of the man was the holy consistency of his daily walk. He has been called "one of the loveliest specimens of the Spirit's work- manship." The secret of this was his habitual dependence upon the Spirit of God.
