Secret to Prevailing Prayer.
I. Men Ought Always to Pray (v. 1).
Prayer Is absolutely necessary to the
spiritual life. It Is to the splrltunl life
what breathing Is to the physical life.
Men ought to pray under every variety
of circumstance In times of sorrow
and burdens t'or strength to endure;
In times of Joy and success for grace
to behave aright. Prayer ought to bo
persisted In even when the answer is
not Immediately seen. Cod does bear
and answer prayer even when we do
not understand the mysteries of delay.
II. Tho Urgent Prayer of a Widow
The picture here Is of n helpless
widow who was being cheated out of
her property rights, coming to a god
less judge for redress. Her on'ty
means of getting help was to prove the
Justice of her claim by bur persist
ence. Even this did not gain access to
his heart, for he feared not God nor
regarded men. lie complied with hor
ropiest In order to get rid of her.
The point here Is not that Gwl Is llgo
this unjust Judge and can be teased
Into compliance, hut rather that if
such action can lie secured on the part
ot' a godless Judge by persistence, In.w
much surer will he the help oC Cod

church In this age suffering the de
privation of her rights. It Is not the
church praying for vengeance upon
her enemies, but suing for the pus
session of her rights by virtue of her
covenant relation In Christ. The in
heritance of the church will be uctujl
Ized -ut the coming of Christ. This
Is why the truth concerning the com
ing of Christ Is so vltnl to Christian
ity, and why such disastrous conye
quenccs follow the loss of the Rlcsveil
The appaient delay In the vindica
tion of the church may dishearten
some and cause others to mock (II
Peter :!:!). Jesus' irucstlou bhoilld be
a solemn warning against allowing
the npparent delay of the coming of
the Lord to crowd out our praying.
Though many may give up we should
be assured that genuine faith will
abide, and that the divine promise con
cerning the coming of Christ shall bo
fulfilled. We can be sure of God.
III. Tho Prayer of tho Proud
Pharisee (vv. fl-lti).
1. He Took a Strlkliu Attitude
(v. 11). The Jewish custom was to
stnmi while praying, but the word
"stood" Implies the. assumption of nn
ostentatious position. He wns stlf
rlghtenus and trusted In himself.
'J. He Prayed With Himself (vv. 11.
11!) . He used the name of God, hu It
was really a soliloquy. He pretended
to be thanking God when really he
was rehearsing his own goodnesa
complimenting himself. His whole
thought centered -In himself, lie con
gratulated himself for (1) his morality
(vv. 11). He thanked God thnt ho
was not as other men nro, such as
extortioners, unjust, adulterers, ir
even as the publican who was stand
ing afar off. () ills Religious Merits
(v. 12). He fasted twice a week and
gave tithes of all ho possessed. lTo
thus Informed God that he did morn
than was required, implying that God
was, under obligation to him.
iV. The Prayer of the Humble
Publican (v. III).
In striking contrast with this sup
posed saint stood tho publican whose
shame kept Iilm from even looking
up to Heaven, bating upon his breast
as a sign of anguish of soul, crying
out to God to be merciful to him, a
sinner. Ho tool: his place ns n sinner
mid called upon God for mercy.
V. Christ's Testimony (v. 14).
He declared that the publican went
away Justified rather than the Phari
see. The one great nnd urgent need
on the parr of men Is a confession oil
sin and a willingness to cry unto God
The Dull Man.
A dull man Is so near a dead man
that he Is hardly to be ranked In
the list of the living; and as he Is not
to be bulled whilst, half alive, o ho
Is as little to be employed whilst lie Is
half dead. Siivllle.
