THE PRAYER MEETING l OUK SYNOIMCAIi ORPHANAGES. Week Beginning Aug. 3, 1919. Jas. 1:27. Most of the Synods in our Church have their own orphanages and all of them ought to have them. In many cases a Synod ought to have moro than one. In some cases Presbyteries have their own orphanages, and if each Presbytery in our Church had its own orphanage there would prob ably not bo more than are needed. Very few people realize the need of these institutions. The statement has recently been made that in tho State of Virginia there are 10,000 orphans that are not in orphans' homes who need to be taken care of. This num ber is no doubt larger just now than usual, due to the scourge of influenza during the past year, and which is said to have killed far more men in this country than were killed in the war. But the number is very great under normal conditions. In all probability the same condi tions proportionately are to be found in the other States. This means that there are many thousands of orphans with no real provision for their care. Of course It may be said that the Presbyterian Church cannot be ex pected to take care of all, of these orphans. That may be true. But Is it not also true that the Presbyterians ought to do all in their power to take care of every orphan in its territory, which has no one else to provide for it? Having the figures for Virginia before us, we use them again by way of illustration. Suppose no other church, organization or individual did anything for the unprovided for 10, 000 orphans in the State. Would It not be their duty and would it not be possible for the 45,000 members of the Presbyterian Church In this State to take care of all of the 10,000 orphans? Or suppose the Presbyterian Church should only be held responsible for its proportionate share of say 2,000 of these orphans, could they not eas ily be taken care of by the Synod? The fact is that this Synod is now taking care of only about 120 of them. So far as we know, the proportion is about the same for other States. This seems to bo falling far below what is needed and what Presbyterians can do. Is there anything that can appeal more strongly to a Christian heart than a child with no one to take care of it? Many of the orphans In this country are growing up, not only In poverty and want, but also in very bad conditions in other respects. Many of the waifs in our cities are orphans. Many of the boys and girls who go wrong and become criminals could have been saved if, when their fath (Continued on page 14.)
