It is to be ft day fasting and prayer, In view of the unhappy condition destroy , utterly a. a nation, for our naUon- al sins-that sins-that sins-that in the midst of deserved wrath he may remember mercy, c But this mercy is only to looked and hoped for by humbling ourselves before Him-by Him-by Him-by repenting of . our ingratitude in the past, and resolving to be faithful in the future. Doyou not feel that you have been thoughtless, thankless and ungrateful to nim for all bis blessings. Has He not been kind and Indulgent and forbearing toward you? Ho. have von acted? You have neglected his Sab- . oains sugOMd nis wora uespiaeu uis cuuuaaia uu set at naught bia precepts. Is it not so? Have yon loved him supremely, and your neighbor as yourself Ilavt you? .What have yon done toward -bringing -bringing 'His Kingdom" upon this sinful earth? Have you -f .paid your vows to him? j Do jou not feel condemned when you remember your gospel privileges the open Bible the preached gospel the place of prayer especially when you thinkhow often you have slighted and neglected themt J God is entering Into judgment with you for these things, and he will punish yon by taking away your sons and brothers and husbands upon the field of battle. He has sent the scourge of Civil War upon the land, to teach the people their duty to, and dependence upon Him. Peradventure, if we repent and turn to him he will remove his anger from ns, and restore to us the blessings of peace and prosperity. Remember, then, that this day Is to be devoted to prayer by all the people of the Southern States. Hear what the Lord says, and tremble, ye that have lived in the habitual practice of robbing Godt" Hear what He says by the mouth of his prophet Malachi: rEven from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto ue, and 1 will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.; But ye said, Wherein shsll we return? Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed tbee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with e curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, - that there may be meat io mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if 1 will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that ther$ ihali not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the ilevonrer for your sakes, and be shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine east' her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts. Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord, Yet ye say, What have we spoken to much against thee ? , Ye have said, It w vain to serve God: and what profit is U that we have kept bis ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered., ti- ti- : ; ' Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard & and ft book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of boats, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth bim. Then shall ye return and discern between the rlgbt-'eeus rlgbt-'eeus rlgbt-'eeus and the wicked,' between bim that serveth God and him that serveth him not For behold the day eometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day tnat comets snail burn them no. saith the Lord of boats, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name, shall the Sun of righteousness arise with beating in bis wings; and ye shall go forth,' and grow op as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles ef your feet in the dav that I shall do thit, saith the Lord of hosts. t VoitiSTMBS.
