Kdllor of Advance We have studied Abraham a'; a man of faith. Faith and prayer go , together, though prayer Is moiv instinctive thnn faith. A man v\\a has lllllc faith will pray In an emergency, and men who prolos-, to dlsb-.-llcve In God have Instinctively called upon Him when thej- have been confronted by dmi"er or tragedy. Prayer In Its 'deepest, aspect Is that outreach of the w ,ii) toward some power or Mrcngtl) htul Is ut'fdcd.

H was concerning .such' prayer that tho an- deni wrlt?r said that "the prayer of a righteous man ayailelli much," It Is constructive and Interesting to .study this lesson In the light of tilings. Abraham was making a prayer for fiodom and Gomorrah, that they might not be destroyed because ol their sin. What we have In this prayer Is a conception of mercy and grace, so far In advance of cuncsptiuns ul (iud thai arc more definitely related to the New Tustami'iit that OIK- marvels to (hid such an cx- liivsslon in the Book or OIK-SIS. which goes so far buck In the history of the race. "Will thou consume the rlgl'it- uitis with the wicked?" asks Abraham. U Is more Hum n prayer—H is a questioning; It is a riMsonlng; it Is. in a seme, n trial of tlie fioil In whom Abraham believes. It Is a striking and penetrative question Are not the good and the innocent, even if they be few. to be considered as well as the guilty? "Suppose there are 50 righteous," said hs, "suppose there are only live." Compare the spirit of this appeal of Abraham with what.has happened In history, and with wtiat is happening t-vi-n in our modern, supposedly scientific:, enlightened, and humanitarian age. We have seen within our own day civilian propli's destroyed In war, women and children bamlral with produsu of modern scientific destructiveness, with no regard for mercy or tenderness or Justice. The s;>lrit of Abraham's prayer rebukes our modern day. and reminds us that If we really had the spirit.of prayer, we would understand that I here is grace and mercy with the Almighty, even as the narrative records tlie answer to the pray;'! 1 . f * « A great preacher once was asked what he would do If he found after death, that Instead of (here being iiiwn the Uirone of the universe a God of love, as he proclaimed .there was a mighty tyrant He answered, "I should go up to him and say, 'Sir. I expected belter things of you:" Abraham's prayer to God revealed MIC spirit of liis own life ami his own great discovery of lie principle of mercy nnd jus- lee Would Gotl that everywhere in the world there were the same regard for the security and right of tne good, the Innocent, nnd the I rue! 109 Junior High Pupils Perfect in Attendance There were itiO students of the junior high school who made u perfect aUeiuliinec mark for the first 1.™ of the second semester. ^,,^,, Honors were almost evenly divid- Dai'ls, Bunn, Frances Corlew. charlel Caldwcll.
