The Lori's Prayer.-In the considera
tion of this prayer we may remark, that
as to its character.
It is divine. How excellen't must be
the petition which the king himself has
drawn up! It must certainly meet with
acceptance from its author.
It is comprehensie-c. There cannot be
mentioned a petition necesssary for man,
not included in these,-Thy kingdom
come,-Thy will be done.-G i-a us this
day our daily bread,-U'orgive us our
trespasses.-Lead us not into temptation,
-Deliver us from uvil.
It is sublime. This character of gran.
1. In tts design. What is more enno

earth is the footstool of Jehovah. The
grandest posture is prostration before his
2. In its lantutage. The simple gran
deur which struck Longinus in 'Let there
be light, and there was light.' brcathes in
every sentence of this prayer. hIere are
no swelling words of man's wisdom ; here
is nothing rebundant; nothing deficient.
It is the language of sublime devotion,
chastened by filial awe.
3. In its conceptions. In vain look we
for sublimity, where these are poor. But
what vastness have we here! God,-the
kingdom of God.-nngelic obedience,
earthe-the will of God. the only law of
its one thousand mtllions of living men ;

dread; deliverance from evil; the power,
the glory, the eterniry of God ! Was 1

A Striking Fact.-One of the cit y M~is
