[blocks in formation]

The salt preserveth the sea, and the saints uphold the

earth; Their prayers are the thousand pillars that prop the

canopy of nature. Prayer is a creature's strength, his very breath and being; Prayer is the golden key that can open the wicket of

mercy ; Prayer is the slender nerve that moveth the muscles of

Omnipotence. Wherefore, pray, 0 creature, for many and great are thy

wants ; Thy minds, thy conscience, and thy being, thy rights

commend thee unto prayer; The cure for all cares, the grand panacea for all pains. So then, God is true, and yet He hath not changed: It is HE that sendeth the petition, to answer it according

to His will.

M. F. TUPPER.
