Text: "Evening:, anl morning, and. at
Boon will I pray, and cry aloud; and He
eliai! hear my voice." Ps. S5:17.
AVID had what
may be called the
prayer habit. In
the text before ua

God, of his clear
the deep things of
God, of hi3 joy in
life ana ms sweet trust and confidence
in the face of every danger and every
difficulty and every experience, is dis
covered in this bit of autobiography
which he here gives us. In another
place the Psalmist declares: "My voice
shalt Thou hear in the morning, O
Lord: in the morning will I direct my
prayer unto Thee, and will look up."
Or, as the revised version puts it,
"Will keep watch." The morning
watch with prayer as the ladder by
which the soul may climb to the Divine
presence and there obtain the needed
strength and grace and guidance for
the duties of the day. The noontide
rest with prayer a3 the calm, peaceful,
refreshing breath of God coming to the
soul in the fever and struggle of the
daily conflict and giving new hope and
new vigor and new purpose to the life.
The evening quiet with prayer as the
gentle, soothing influence stealing over
the soul and drawing it away from the
thing3 of time to the things of
eternity, and causing It to rest in sim
ple trust in the Father's care. "Eve
ning, and morning, and at noon" David
would withdraw himself from the ac
tive, busy scenes of life and alone with
his God he would hold sweet and rest
ful and helpful fellowship with Him.
THINK you this thrice daily bending
of the knee and the lifting of the
heart to God was the perfunctory
obcd?nce to duty's stern call? Think
you that the early morning watch and
the noontide rest and the evening quiet
with God alone were seasons' trying and
vnenjoyable? The traveler over the
dreary desert waste of sand, with burn
ing heat and blinding light, looks for
ward with joy to the refreshing under
the sheltering shade of the palms and
by the cool, gushing spring which is to
be found just ahead on' that bit of
green and verdant oasrs. The children
of Israel rejoiced with exceeding great
joy when, after the weary marches
over the waterless and treeless and
rocky desert, they came to Elim where
were wells of water and inviting shade
and luscious fruits. Think you that
the traveler dreads the oasis rest and
refreshing? Think you that Israel's
hosts found the hours at Elim too long
and tedious and unrefreshing? Nay,
verily, for the oasis and Elim were
places of refreshing, of rest, of joy and
blessing, and the places of preparation
for the onward journey, and the oases
and Elims of prayer are the places of
refreshing, and rest, and encourage
ment and preparation for the duties of
THE Christian cannot prosper and
make progress toward the prom
ised land which God has given as a her
itage to His children, unless the soul
comes to these places of refreshing, to
these oases of prayer. They should be
set in the journey of the everyday life.
so that the shades of the evening hour,
as they draw down and shut the lyght
of day from view, will find the sotil
encamped by the side of the reviving
and quickening springs of water of
God's presence. There the soul $yay
rest in safety until another day alls
the pilgrim to take up his journey.
Then the morning watch may be set.
Then the soul may drink deep and long
at the well of prayer, and gain strength
and encouragement and guidance for
the journey of the day. Ani at noon
the soul should turn aside from the
bustle and strife and struggle of lrfe
and seek out the oasis of grayer. There,
as nowhere eke. it may meet its God,
may tell Him its hopes, its trials, its fail
ures; may unburden Kaelr, and may ob
tain new inspiration, and strength and
jruidance for the afternoon's duties
and cares and responsibilities. Daniel
with the multitudj of responsibilities
of statecraft restirg upon him, with the
problems of the great Babylonian king
dom demanding his attention, found
time, three tlines a day, wHh his win
dows open Awards Jerusalem, to seek
his God in yrayer. Nay, rather, ft was
ti priviless and necessity, this thrice
daily communion with God, if, Daniel
was to Ajntinue the wise and successful
statesman and governor that he had
provt-1 himself under the leading and
direction and blessing of God.
TTOW full the Scriptures are of pre
.n. cept and example, enforcing: the
importance and necessity of prayer.
How every great event and epoch re
corded ra sacred history has come as
answer to prayer. Of the Godly line of
Seth it is testified that they began "to
call upon the name of the Lord." And
ever since that day there have been
God-fearing men and women who have
known and believed God. and who have
prevailed in prayer with Him. Abra
ham, Isaac and Jacob, having received
the promise of God of a posterity and a
natioa, obtained that promise through
faith, and through prayer, whreh was
an evidence and expression of that
faith. Jacob in prayer prevails and Is
called a prince of God, because He
prayed the prayer of faith and held on
to God until the prayer was answered.
Moses, again and again, offers prayer
in behalf of Israel and obtains for them
forgiveness and blessing, where the
wratlwof God was about to consume
them for their disobedience. Joshua
and the long lhie of judges were men
of prayer, and through their prayers
cf faith God was able to send deliver
ance from enemies and to bless. David,
In his prayerless moments, planned to
be a temple builder of God, and the
prophet cf God. ere he had talked the
matter over with God in prayer comr
mended the king for his worthy
Rjuibition, and assured him that he
should realize his heart's desire. But
the prophet after an interview with
God must endure the humiliation of
going to the king and reversing his
judgment and commendation and tell
the king that he could not build God's
temple. And King David must go in
and sit before the Lord, and find as
he communed with Him that instead of
a temple builder he was to be a Mes-
THE prayers or Godly kings time and
time again stayed the destroying
hand of the enemy and delayed the judg
ments that had been pronounced against
Israel for her sirs. The prophets,
through prayer, were able to shut the
heavens of rain and dew and then to
pray and bring the rain and the dew.
Through their ministry of prayer the
prophecies and purposes of God were
realized. It is declared of Daniel that
he "understood by the books the number
of the years whereof the word of Jeho
vah came to Jeremiah, the' prophet, for
the accomplishing of the desolations of
Jerusalem, even 70 years." Prayerful
study of God's word had revealed God)s
purposes concerning Israel, and Daniel
goes on to say: "I set my face unto the
Lord God, to seek by prayer and suppli
cations, with fastings and sackcloth and
ashes." And pleading God's promises,
he prayed for the deliverance of Israel
from captivity, and God heard and an
swered that prayer in the wonderful way
recorded In the books of Ezra and Ne
hemiah. Jesus' coming was ushered in
by the prayers of God's children who
were "looking for the consolation of
Israel." And the devout Simeon In the
temple as he prayed was given the vision
of the coming one and had been assured
that he should see Him ere he died. And
the prayer of faith found Its realization
as he took the infant Jesus in his arms
and blessed Him, pronouncing that won
derful prophecy over Him which is find
ing its fulfillment to this very day.
TAMES declares that "the effectual,
J fervent prayer of a righteous man
availeth much. The testimony of God's
word from Genesis to Revelation proves
the truth of this declaration. All of the
men who have wrought with and for
God have been men of prayer. And ev
ery Christian in his own experience may
prove that it is true; yea, it Is not only
his privilege, but his duty to do so. His
Christian life must be barren indeed,
and he must be almost a stranger to God
and out of fellowship with Him, if the
prayer of faith is not rising to the Fa
ther and receiving its answer. All men
who have wrought with and for God
have been men of prayer. Jesus was
much given to prayer, whole nights be
ing thus spent, while the weary disciples
were unconscious in sleep. Repeated
reference is made to Jesus' prayers and
seasons of prayer, but I doubt If any
adequate idea can be formed from these
detached references to the utter depend
ence which Jesus placed in these sea
sons alone with the Father. If
the complete record of every
moment of Jesus' three years
ministry were before us, I believe
we should be startled and amazed, yea
and condemned, for our own prayerless
lives, by the large place which prayer
took in His ministry. Christ was vic
torious through prayer. He prevailed
because He prayed, and we must not for
get that prayer marks our pathway to
victory; it Is the way in which we may
prevail with God. One of Jesus most
earnest admonitions to His disciples is
to pray and not to faint.
"DUT in spite of the overwhelming test!-
J- mony of Scripture and of those to
day who have proved again and again
the power and efficacy of prayer, how
prayerless are the lives of many of God's
children. The wicked. Job declares,
ask: "What profit shall we have if we
prayuntoHim?" We do not wonder that
the people of the world can ask such
question, or that they can go through
life utter strangers to the true heart
prayer which reaches God for there is
much so-called prayer which never gets
any higher than the head or uie altar
rail or the pulpit or the vaulted ceilings
of the church which echoes the sound
thereof. But that there should be those
of God's children who in their hearts
ask the question, if it is not framed with
the lips: "What profit shall we have if
we pray unto Him?" seems almost In
credible. I heard the Btory, a true story,
of a little boy Christian and his joy in
receiving answer to prayer. He was
trudging along with a heavy basket on
his arm. It was a lonely country road
and darkness was falling fast. Home
was yet a long way ahead. He tugged
at the basket and struggled on until
it seemed to him as though he would
drop. What could he do? Well, he
might have done a good many things.
He might have sat down and cried. He
might have grown cross and impatient
Ah, how many of us would under like
circumstances? But he did not. He was
a little Christian who prayed, and when
he got Into a place where he did not
know what to do he would talk to Jesus
about it. So he set his basket down by
the roadside, and kneeling behind some
bushes, asked help to get home. He was
so absorbed in his little prayer that he
did not hear the carriage on the soft turf
road draw near the spot and then stop.
His prayer ended he came out to begin
again his weary tramp homeward, and
there before him was a carriage waiting.
The driver had seen the basket and
stopped in wonder. And as he saw the
little boy come from the bushes he in
vited him to ride with his basket into
town. And the prayer was answered.
Think you it would have happened so.
prayer or no prayer? Perhaps. But
there was prayer and the answer to
prayer. It was the prayer habit that
brought that little boy to his knees. It
was God who brought circumstances
to pass which answered the prayer. And
it is in just such little experiences of life
where God wants us to talk with Him
and ask His guidance and help. And He
will never fail us. Form the prayer
habit, and your life will be filled wjth
peace and Joy which come from a sense
of the fellowship of God and His over
ruling care and providences. With

irritable way. She wrinkled up her fore
head and at once made a series of remark
ably swift movements with her nimble
fingers. The husband, looking exceedingly
apologetic, made a few motion in re

little by-play, flyly slipped out a bit of paper
and penciling something on it, handed it to

V I cannot say too
much in praise of
Pills, for they
effected a com
plete cure in a
very short time
when I was suffering from kidney
troubles brought on by a cold. I had
severe pains in the back and sick head
aches, and felt miserable all over. A
few boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills made
me a well woman, without an ache or
pain, and I feel compelled to recom
mend this reliable remedy."
