John  v.,   14,16.  I    The subject  of  prayer   is  one     of  ; never.failing interest   to human k'ind.  For  all uren pray.al  some time   or  other,   whether fitfully or constantly,  in   weakness or stri-n^lli,  in sorrow  or      in       joy.   Some men,pray because  it is .their: cliiefest  delty/it so  to do,  ami)soniopray  because  necessity dri.es  them  to it;  but   they all  pray.    Prayer  is a constant element,  and, thj.impulse  to  pray   is c\cr present to human nature.  Some things arc very striking ,a-  bout Ibe New Testament Niching on  the sii'l.jost of prayer. The words of  Jesus are perfectly direct, njiinple an<|  emj hatic.
