THE PRAYER CORNER
Time is indeed a precious boon,
But with the boon a la.sk is given.
The heart must learn its duty well,
To man on earth and God in Hiaveii.
We can put our own interpretation
on the word "Duty." ii mean.-, just
what we want it to. It >s either a
hard stern taskmaster, or a penile
leader, whose kind approval is ai>vay;>
awaiting us ? a sure ivwar-i i"i c-v< . y
thing cheerfully and widi;.j.'iy done.
There is no task whi<:h may not be
finished, no burden which shall nol
be lifted, no cloud that shall not m
dispersed, and no night that hath not
its glorius dawn. .Some time, some
time, we shall be able to fully real
ize this, and understand that th.re is
"augend to all things under the sun."'
Let us go on then, doing the duty
nearest, sweetening each task witii a
smile, and doing with our might wha.
our hands find to do. If We make
duty a pleasure, it will be far easiei
for us. Each person is a hero in
the Eyes of God, if he is actively en
gaged in doing his best. Go ii.aveiy
forward, meet and surmount ever;,
difficulty: put your hand into the
hand of God.
Long though my ta. k may be,
Cometh the end.
God 'ti.: that helpeth rae,
His is the work, ai d l!e
New strength <*>il lend.
A PRAYKR FOR DUTY
We entreat Thee, O Lord, to re
member us in our daily work. Let
us do it heartily as unto flue, an.:
not as unto men. We know that Yin
kind approval is always awaiting,
cheerfully and willingly done.
Grant tiiat our tasks may be con
genial to us, that we may give our
selves wholly to them. ('oiiMcrat*
all our powers of body and mind ??
do Thy service. Give us enthusiasm,
a fervent spirit, a cheerful, hopeful
temper, so that we may do our w?.r.<
with ease and self-control, not with
idle worry, or fruitless fear. I - u>
not think too much of our right . !;t t
always of our duties, doing the <mt\
nearest, sweetening each task wiui ..
smile, and doing with our might what
our hands find to do. Help us to
make duty a pleasure, so shall v.e liii.i
favor in Thine eyes, Our Father, for
Thou art pleased with every one that
does his best.
(Jive us grace to go bravely for
ward, meeting and surmounting ev
ery difficulty, putting our hand in
Thine, so wilt Thou help us, for our
work, if \vc do it unto Thee, is Thy
work, and "as our days so shall our
strength be. Grant this 0 Lord, in
