BE NOT AFRAID TO PRAY.

Fur is the time, remote from human sight, When war and discord on the earth shall cease ; Yot every prayer for universal peace Awaits the blessed time to expedite. Whatever is good to wish, ask that ol heaven, Though it be what thou ounflt not bops to see ; Pray to be perfect, though material leaven, Forbid tho spirit so on earth to be; Bat if for any wish thon dareBt not pray, Then pray to God to cast that wish away. . ,s ,,., — Hartley Coleridge. o
