HOWARD W. POPE Moody BibU Institute, Chicago '-'.4 TEXT I exhort therefore, that prayers. Intercessions, and giving: of thank be made for all men. -I Tim. 2:1. The Importance of prayer as a preparation is seen when we consider the nature of the work. The task before us In to convince men that they are lost, and to persuade them to confess their siu and sur render their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. It Is easy to show a thief or a drunkard that he is a sin ner, and needs salvation; but it Is not easy to persuade a re spectable, moral man that he Is a sinner simply be cause he has not accepted Christ us his Savior. Sin is so subtle, and the human heart so stubborn, that only the Holy Spirit can make one see that unbelief is the crowning sin of nil. The common Idea Is that work Is the main business of the Christian, and a little prayer is necessary to help the work along. Christ's Idea Is entirely different. In his thought prayer Is our chief business, with Just enough work to make a channel through which the spiritual forces generated by prayer may find an out let. Prayer is the bow that supplies the force and work Is the feather that guides the arrow to Its destination. "If ye shall ask I will do," he says. In other words, Christ Is still doing the work that he "began to do" (Acts 1:1), and, he invites us to help him by prayer, whereas too many Chris tians think that they are carrying on the work, but need a little help from hira. What your Idea Is may best be determined by estimating the amount of time you spend in working for the Lord and the amount spent In prayer. Yes, -we are Ignorant, but thank God we can all learn. Jesus has opened a school of prayer In which, If we will, we may learn the divine art. And what a teacher! How pa tient, how long-suffering with dull scholars! And how much he knows about the subject! For eighteen hun dred years this has been his constant occupation, and now he Invites us to become his pupils, and offers to teach us all he knows. "All things that I have heard from my Father I have made known unto you." (John 15:15). The personal worker should culti vate the habit of praying daily for all men. This Is not only a positive com mand (1 Tim. 2:1), but the habit has many obvious advantages. For In stance, you never meet u person for whom you have not prayed, and this fact gives you a deeper Interest and a stronger faith than would otherwise be possible. Sometimes It is well to tell the person you are dealing with that you have prayed for him scores of times. Possibly he may ask, "Have you ever seen me before?" "Not to my knowledge.' "And yet you say that you have prayed for me many times?" "Yes, sir," "I cannot understand that," "Very likely. That Is one of the mysteries of the Kingdom, and there are .many other strange things that you cannot understand until you are a Christian yourself." It Is well also to have a prayer list, and dally remember by name those whom God has especially laid on our hearts. As a rule It Is easy to speak to those for whom we have often prayed. Gypsy Smith tells us that when he was converted he Immediate ly became anxious for the conversion of his uncle. Among Gypsies It was not considered proper for children to address their elders on the subject of duty; and so the boy Just prayed, and waited for God to open the way. One day his uncle noticed a hole In his trousers, and said, "Rodney, how Is It that you have worn the knees of your pants so much faster than the rest of them?" "Uncle, I have worn them out pray ing for you, that God would make you a Christian;" and then the tears came, of course. Nothing more was said, but the uncle put his arm around the boy and drew him close to his breast, and In a little while was bending his knees to the same Saviour. When we wear our clothes thin In praying for oth ers, we shall not find It hard to speak to them If the opportunity occurs. Horrible Can Lose Its Horror. And If my compassions are to be like a river that never knows drought I must cultivate a freshness of sight. The horrible can lose Its horrors. The dally tragedy can become the dally commonplace. Therefore must I ask the Lord for the dally gift of discern ing eyes. "Lord, that I may receive my sight," and receive It new every morning. Give me the power to see the common as well as the uncom mon! May that which is familiar startle me every day. With an al ways newly-awakened Interest may 1 reveal "the compassions of the Lord."
