On The Lighter Side...
Did you hear about the Jap destroyer that
intercepted and destroyed five U. S. torpedoes?
Two officers were having an argument about
the subject of matrimony. Said the first: “The
way I figure it marriage is about 90% work
and 10% fun.”
“You’re wrong,” said the other, “It’s about
25% work and 75% fun.”
At this point a seaman standing nearby
piped up, “If you will pardon me sirs, matri
mony is 100% fun and no work at all.”
“How do you figure that?” asked the two.
“It’s very simple,” replied the seaman, “If
there were any work in it at all, you guys
would have me doing it.”

A trio of liquor, food and mattress salesmen
were sitting at a table drinking a beer. The
food salesman spoke first and said, “You know,
I hate to see a woman eat alone.”
“I hate to see a woman drink alone,” said
the liquor salesman.

“There are no British submarines in the
Baltic,” shouted an SS man. “You mean your
ships struck a mine.”
“All right,” said the skipper meekly, “We
struck a mine.”
The court pressed him for more details.
“Well,” said the skipper, “the mine gave us
15 minutes to take to the lifeboats.”

Prayer is a spontaneous activity of the soul.
When man is in dire need he impulsively
reaches out for every resource of help. Re
cently three survivors of a torpedoed mer
chant ship floated on a raft for weeks. Though
of different faith and background, they turn
ed instinctively in prayer to God for deliver
ance. In a time of great happiness or jubila
tion, this emotional experience is expressed in
praise and thanksgiving to God. Yet the very
spontaniety of prayer requires that it be cul
tivated and developed; the developing quality
of prayer is an inevitable indication of re
ligious progress. In both the Old and the New
Testaments an emphasis is placed on the
growth of prayer.
Prayer is a supremely personal experience.
It is the means whereby the human personal
ity catches the spirit of the universe. Man’s
greatest venture of faith, his wholehearted
response to the impact of God, and his ulti
mate adjustment to destiny are achieved by
his meaningful experience. Carlyle could well
say, “Prayer is and remains the native and
deepest impulse of the soul of man.”
In the beautiful and expressive words of Al
More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy
Rise like a fountain for me night and day.
For what are men better than sheep or goats
That nourish a blind life within the brain.
If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer
Both for themselves and those who call them
For so the whole round earth is every way
Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.
