ASK GOD!
LISTEN ! !
ACT!!!
The General Assembly of the Southern Presbyterian Church in
session at Birmingham, Alabama, formally asked God, Our God,
the Great and Powerful, Almighty and Merciful God to give us
SI, 925, 000, for our Assembly causes, our Synods brought the
amount to Three Million Dollars by adding local needs.
We believe that our Great and Merciful, Longsuffering and Lov
ing Heavenly Father has heard the prayers of our General Assem
bly and of our Synods. We have listened for His voice. W7e
believe our Wonderful Counselor has said to us:
When the German army was well nigh to Paris Jol'fry, whom we all
honor and love, crowded to the wall, sent this message, "men of
France die where you are." Wfe are not on the defensive, our
warfare is an aggressive warfare and our Matchless Leader is
shouting to us, (above the call of Government, Red Cross, Y. M.
C. A. "this ought ye to have done") Follow Me.
What is time , money compared with His blood. He gave His life
shall we withold our time, our money when our Lord Jesus has
need of them?
