DETHROIG GOD— CHRIST'S PRAYER BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR either for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on Me through their word. John 17: 20. Father, I bring this worthless child to Thee To claim Thj pardon once yet once again. Sin hath destroyed him, sin hath died in me, Satan hath bound him, Satan is my slave; Death hath desired him, I have conquered death. Father hear him now, not him but me, I would not have him lost for all the worlds Which Thou hast long created for my glory.  — E. Birrell.

In hamlet, in wood, and in wold By the shores of the beautiful sea. He toucheth the sightless eyes; Before Him the demons flee, To the dead He sayeth — " Arise," To the living, " Follow Me." And that voice still soundeth on From the centuries that are gone To the centuries that shall be.  — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. IT is beautiful to see how Christ came into contact with individuals all through his ministry.
