In' order that the shut-ins of congregations and to those whose manifold duties of home and life prevent them from attending the services of the Protestant, churches during the Week of. Prayer, the publicity committee of the Ministerial Association offers-n brief meditation for their, prayerful consideration. The theme of the Week of Prayer, as suggested by the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America, is "Lord. Teach Us to- Pray." 'The suggested topic for consideration at last night's service was "In the Beginning, God." Emphasis was given in the prayers for the "Rediscovery of the Reality of God." The article says: " . "Attention is called by the Committee on Evangelism that we have lost the sense of God's reality. Many Many 'have lost all concern about a Heavenly Father and do not feel His need and presence in their homes and dally walks of life. We have not been availing ourselves of the opportunity of coming to Him in prayer. We arc not sensitive of His divine presence. Rather we have been building barricades between Him and us. The reality of the presence of God is to many neither an external nearness nor even an inward experience. We do not feel j that we are the temple of the living God. In our lives and Jiving we too often rely and trust upon our own intelligence and reasoning. Thus we being all things with ourselves rather than have the beginning and source of .all our doing really begin with God. . Praise and thanksgiving should be mado-at-thVbeginnlng of this New Year for - the eternal and unchangeable greatness- and goodness of God; for the disclosures of His wisdom and.. power in the process of ·nature and in_ human history; for the full revclation;.of ;His 'reality in_thc personnel 'Kis..
