Nehemiah praying and God work.np

people and the hitter that lils vaya

God that hldest Thyself. O God of la
rael, thc Saviour-' ('.sa xiv. 13). Thi
time of the book ls xupposed to ba
about seventy yean after the dedicn
tion of the temple that wis rebuilt bj
Zerubbabel and thirteen years aft'
K/ra'a reform, as recorded In Kr.. 1'
aud x. For nome reason Neheml-i!
had remalued at Babylon Instead o
returning with Ezra's company, lui
his heart was nt Jerusalem. Ile ara
a true Israelite at ? gentile court. Ilk
Joseph. Moses. Daniel and Mordoca
loving his people and burdened fe
them. Ile knew the God of heave
(1. 4, 5; ll. 4. Ml. and. although li
knew nim as the f:rcat and tvrribl
God. lie also knew Hiui as ii Cod kee)
lug covenant aad mercy for them tlu
love Ulm. ready tu pardon, jrrai iel
nnd merciful, and he could call Dil
"my ?;od" (1. Bj Ix. IT. 31. 32; li. 8. 1
IS). The Jews at Jerusalem were n<
yet as Inaiali had said they would l>
miine; over their oppressors und res
lng from their sorrow und fear, lu
were still servants In the land, wll
others ruling over them and havir
dominion over them nnd their posse
slons at their pleasure (Neh. Ix. 30. "?'
So we know that the restoration fte
Babylon did not fulfill Isa. xl, 8-V2: xl
1-3; xxxt, 10. or any other of the pre
predictions concerning Israel's tjlorlo
future, nil of which will be fulfill
when the Lord Jesus shall come t
second time lu power and glory
restore all things of which the prof
ets have spoken (Acts 111. '21). He h
said that Ile will not rent till tin
th Suers are fulfilled, and we are not
right with Ulm as we should be I
less we take BO rent and give II
no rest until Ile make Jerusalem
praise In the earth (Isa. lxll. 1-7). Soi
ono may say. "I nm more Interested
our own Zion." meaning his o'
church or denomination, not und
standing the purpose of the Lord
this tiKe to gather out from nil natlc
an elect church, that so the laarrit
of the Lamb may take place and
may return with His bride to bl
Israel and through her all nations
all the earth.
Reproach ls brought upon the L<
today by Ills people who are more
terested In their own affairs than
His. When Nehemiah heard of
grent affliction and reproach rest
upon Jerusalem he gave himself
fasting and prayer, as did Dal
(Dan. x. 2. 3i.
Nehemiah might truly be said to
a man of prayer, of confidence in <
and separation unto Ulm (chapters
ll; il. 4, r?. IS'JO; Iv. 14.20). He was i
a man of patience, for it seems to b
been many months after he bogai
fast and pray before the opport
time c&me to siu-nk to tbe King,
might perhaps have forced au op
tunity. but he hud learned better
knew that the Lord's time nnd '
were the best. In his prayer la
lesson chnpter let us learn from v

Mrs. Hardwick was taken ill when

one to attend to her or the household,
and more especially the baby, who

family. A neighbor came In to take

road, and since the aunt could not
leave her home lt was decided to send
the baby to her In the care of an ex?
press messenger. A bassinet was fit?

Blood Was Wrong
All women, who suffer from the aches and pains, due
to female ailments, are urged to try Cardui, thc reliable,
scientific, tonic remedy, for women. Cardui acts promptly,
yet gently, and without bad effects, on the womanly system,
relieving pain, building up strength, regulating the system,
and toning up the nerves. During the past half century,
thousands of ladies have written to tell of the quick curative
results they obtained, from the use of this well-known medicine.
Mrs. Jane Callehan suffered from womanly trouble for
nearly ten years. In a letter from Whiteville, N. C., she
says: " I was not able to do my own housework. My
stomach was weak, and my blood was wrong. I had back?
ache, and was very weak. I tried several doctors, but they
did me no good. I used Cardui for 3 or 4 months, and now
I am in the best health I have ever been. 1 can never praise
Cardui enough." It is the best tonic, for women.
Whether seriously sick, or simply weak, try Cardui.
