(The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for March 12 la Acts 12:5-17, the Golden Text being Acts 12:5, 'Prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for h i m " ) i By NEWMAN CAMPBELL TODAY WE talk about the power of faith, and we have two very interesting stories to illustrate our tale--just as Jesus made his talks clear by stones that are called parables The first one continues our lessons about Peter and how by hia preachings and teachings he converted very many to the new religion of Jesus. But there were also many who were not only unconverted, but who were made very angry and antagonistic by his teaching, and sought to do him harm The King Herod, listened to these enemies of Peter's, and threw him Into prison He left him to languish .in prison, well guarded, until after the feast of the Passover, when he intended to turn him over to the people, who would kill him. It was the last ntght of the Passover and Peter was asleep In prison All his friends and the Christians everywhere were- praying for htrn "Prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him." the Bibie says in our Golden Text Suddenly a light shone in the prison and it awoke Peter An ange] was standing at his side The angel smote him and raised mm up. saying. "Arise up q u i c k l y " And the chains that bound htm fell off And the angel said, "Gird thyself and bind on thy sandals" / He did. and then the angel said. "Cast thy garments about thce and follow me "He led Peter to the iron gate It opened before them without them having touched It." and they went out into the street Peter thought he was dreaming and that it was all a vision, but the ajige] was gone and he was free, so he went to the house of some friends They were within still praying that he might be spared to them He knocked at the door, and when a maid named Rhocia came to the door, she was so surprised to see him t h a t she rushed joyfully to tell the others They would not believe that it really was Peter, but thought it must be his spirit, hut he convinced them that it was indeed he. In the flesh He told them to go to others and tell of his deliverance, and then he went away to continue his work. The other story is taken from the Old Testament, in Daniel, and it is about Daniel, who was a very clever man and a prophet. He was very frank and told the king's the meaning of their dreams and visions, whether it was pleasant or whether it meant disaster to them because they had been wicked. He foretold Nebuchadnez- zar's fa!) He was the king who went mad, you remember, and ate grass, like an ox. Belshazzar was the king who followed Nebuchadnezzar, and he made a great feast and brought the golden vessels that belonged to the temple and drank wine out of them, he and his household and friends While they were carousing a hand appeared on the wall and wrote some mysterious words None of the wise men of the court could interpret them, and at last Daniel was called in. and he told what they meant. So the king honored him and made him one of his rulers, but this king died and Darius was king in his place. Dnnus. too. honored Daniel, but there were men in the court who hated him and sought to destroy him. They got the king to sign a decree thnt anyone in the kingdom who asked a petition of anyone or any power save the king should be cast Into the lion's den. Then they told the king that every day Daniel prayed to God, and so they said he must be destroyed because he did not keep the law. The king was very sorry he had been tricked into signing the petition, but he couldn't very well go back on his oath, so he had Daniel thrown into the den of lions find he closed the opening of the den with a great atone and sealed it with his own seal. But all that night he couldn't sleep and his heart was very heavy Very early the next morning he went to the den and called, hoping against hope' that something: had saved David from the hungry beasts To hi.i great surprise and Jo Daniel ansxvered and told the king that he waa unharmed "My God." he said, "hath shut the lions' mouths, -that they have not hurt me " The king was glad and com- Tt»nded that they should take Damei out of the den Then he had the wicked men who had plotted against Daniel to be thrown to the hons. they and their wives and children--and the lions killed them all At any rate, faith that they would be saved preserved both these faithful servants of the Lord, and it will do much for us if we trust that we will be helped and work toward that end.
