When Grandmother was a girl, prayer was no stranger to her. She learned early to turn her thoughts to God and to ask Him for courage and for guidance. The country was younger then. Men were still probing physical horizons in search of a better life for their families. Their quest took them to the sea in ships, or along the danger-filled trails to the West Sometimes the women shared their peril. Other times, they stayed at home and waited, and that was even harder. But whichever their course, they prayed. Our horizons are different today, and our lives filled with less danger. But we need prayer just as much — if not more — than we did in Grandmother's day.

If the habit of prayer has become unfamiliar to you, start rediscovering it by attending church services regularly. HAWTHORNE DRUG CO. IS East Mais St. AMERICAN LEGION 171 £.
