SUNDAY AT HOME.

SIR OLIVER LODGE AND INTERCESSORY PRAYER.

Sir Oliver Lodge has recently- had some correspondence with the Rev. W. A. Cornaby-, a Wesleyan missionary- who has spent twenty-two y-ears in the Wuchang district of China, and who is in England on a brief furlough. Mr Cornaby has had some striking experiences, which he attributed to the power of intercessoryprayer offered by- friends in England. On coming to England, he had an Introduction to Sir Oliver Lodge, and, in a long letter to him, Mr Cornaby stated these experiences. All the facts' were carefully- verified and tested before being submitted to Sir Oliver. In his reply Sir Oliver said ; “I feel that the experiences related were all real ones.” Coming from such an authority this opinion is surely significant of much. A PRAYER. (By Rev. George. Mathoson, D.D.) My heart needs Thee, O Lord, my heart needs Thee ! No part of my being needs Thee like my heart. All else within me can be filled by- Thy gifts. My hunger can be satisfied by daily- broad. My thirst can be allayed by earthly waters. My- cold can be removed by- household fires. My weariness can be relieved by outward rest. But no outward thing can make my heart pure. This world has not provided for my- heart. It has provided for my- eye ; it has provided for my ear ; it has provided for my touch ; it has provided for my- taste; it has provided for my- sense of beauty—hut it has not provided for myheart! Provide for my- heart, O Loi’d. Be Thou the strength of my heart ! Be Thou its fortress in temptation, its shield in remorse, its covert, in the storm, its star in the night, its voice in the solitude! Guide it in its gloom: help it in its heat ; direct it in its doubt ; calm it in its conflict ; fan it in its faintness ; prompt it in its perplexity- ; lead it through its labyrinths ; raise it from its ruins ! I cannot rule this heart of mine ; keep it under the shadow of Thine -Own wings !
