Editor of Advance
Peter was in prison. Prisons have
had a fashion in history of con
fining the very bad and the very
8omeone has &aid that mankind
In the progress throws out a van
guard and a rear guard, and
though the vanguard Is very dif
ferent from the rear guard. It suf
fers frequently as much from the
misunderstanding, hostility and per
secution of those in the main body,
who will not tolerate either the
prophet, who is in advance of so
ciety, or the criminal, who harries
•oci^ty from the rear.
One would think that each age
would learn from the mistakes of
preceding ages and rectify these
things but the age-old process goes
Within our own1 generation there
have been in American pr.sons and
^penitentiaries men who* only
••"fault wan the Itensity of their con
cientious objecton to war and kill
ing. The fact that many of these
ba-.e said, as Peter did. “We ought
to obey God gather than rmtV has
made no difierence.
Society Is still intolerant of its
taints and its prophets especially
whenever they dare in any way to
challenge the existing order, cr
policy and acts of a nation iu a
particular circumstances.
There are angels who visit saints
aiid prohets in prison. How else
eould they survive and continue
their work In the world?
There Is a strength and power
of persistency in men of truth and
right that gives them a strange
power to triumph over all manner
of persecution. The angel may not
always be materialized. cha.ns may
not be cast off as miraculously as
In the rase of Peter, but the reality
foes od.
The lesson is given as an example
of the “Power of United Prayer"
(topic for young people and adults)
or for “How Prayer Helps" (inter
mediate a*»1 senior topic). As such
it needs judicious exposition.
It can be given a somewhat ma
terialistic exposition and applica
tion hardly In harmony with facts
of present-day experience. There
may. of course, always be in our
minds the consciousness that pray
er might accomplish a great deal
more than we realize If our faith
and our trust in God’s power were
deeper and more persistent.
Nevetheless. to suggest that ma
terialistic deliverance from impri
sonment -’".♦j-d ' uoncio will always
pmm In answer to prayer would be
to miss the real point and truth of
the lesson.
The important thUg is that
Peter was )|3foundly devoted to
the truth of God. He cared far
more about being faithful to his
mission than about whether he re
mained in Prison or was released
from prison.
We are never in a position to ex
perience all that Ood's power may
achieve until we have that sublime
devotion to duty, that unconcern
about what may happen to our
selves. ss long as we have the
strength and the will to do what is
right and to speak the truth as we
ought to speak it.
?The great things that praver
has achieved have happened to
ward those who had made this
supreme disposal of their lives ac
cording to God s will. There is no
such thing as sincere prayer that
bargains with God or that mea
sures what happens according to
human demand.
But when mag brings his whole

of God. he understands that there
Is rsslity and power in prayer that
th worldly-minded can never un

what seems to be the denial of
outward petitions.

words of Jesus. “Nevertheless not

ing School at the Junior College
Auditorium on March 26. 27, 28 and
“From the earliest childhood our
treasured recollections of our par
ents are those when they forgot
their grown-up cares and romped
and played With us," says Mrs.
Yates. “Tais play obligation on the
part of the mother does not end
when the children start to school.
“The modern homemaker, how
ever, realizes that her cookery and
other household duties must be ef
ficiently done so that she may
have free hours for her own, as
well as her childrens' recreation.
“The privilege of being a true
homemaker is woman's greatest
privilege. It is a profession m

The real homemaker keeps pace
with the newest trends In her pro

you when the Happy Kitchen Cook

methods in preparing meals which

when he came face to face with
them during the days of his popu
larity in his eary young manhood."
U was announced. "What did he do
with the proposals to live an unre
strained life? What did he do with
he proposal to live in such a way as
:o be popular? How did he keep his
'ife unspoiled amid the clamoring
temptations of his day? These and
other questions will be answered as
we look In on the scene where Satan
comes to offer Jesus his friendship
and assistance. This sermon looks
deep Into life as we now live It."
