* PRAVNG FORl RAIN. *

Editor The Herald and News: Your
correspondent failed to correctly
quote what -we sn.id in . a interview
with the Spartanburg Jour.1al, though
correct in the position we '.ke. We
said, with emphasis, that it was not
for, us to say whether or ':.ot the
drought, and consequent ills, came as

a judgment from God, but if it did it
was an insult to pray for rain until
the people confessed their evil doings
and stopped doing the things which
brought on this distress; and that is
true from both Bible teaching and rea
son. The Bible distinctly says, "If I
regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord
will not hear me;" "He that turneth
away his ear from hearing the law,
even his prayer shall be abomination."
"Ye ask and recenve not, because ye
ask amiss, that ye may consume it
upon your pleasures."
We did not say it was useless to
pray for rain; but, we repeat, "If these
calamities come as divine judgments
then men insult God by going on in
sin, and at the same time -praying Him
to remove His chatening hand. Con
fession and abandonment of the wroxig
must come before our prayers can
avail with God.
But what are the facts? Baieball on
Sunday; a thousand motor cars chas
ing over all the land on the Lord's
Day; men and women in every town
and rural section making a conven
ience of God's Holy Sabbath, neglect
ing the Lord's house; robbery under
pretext of law; government prostitu
ted to the vilest ends; immorality
stalking red-handed through the land;
and pleasure dominating the life of
the great masses. Then, how many
would ever have met to pray purely
for the glory of God? With many hon
orable exceptions, it is yet true that
men want prayer for blessings that
"they may consume it upon their.
Our position is clearly founded on
the word of God; and the principle is
unmistakably given in the words of
Jesus: "Leave thy gift at the altar,
go and be reconciled to thy brother,
and then come and offer thy gift." So,
let men confess their wrongs against
dod, and like Josiah and his people,
vow ,o abandon their iniquity. Then,
and only then, is there promise that
our prayers will' avail with God.
