"Prayer changes things." An un
usual letter about this is on my
desk from a reader of this column.
The story goes back to 1931 in the
midst of the depression The bot
tom had fallen out of things for
him in every way. His business had
collapsed, and he had a critically
ill child. One night he was called
to a sales dinner in a small hotel.
Fie was surprised to see in the din
ing room a motto hung on the wall.
"Prayer Changes Things". The
motto gripped him. Returning to
his home town 25 miles away he
thought about that molto and pray
ed like he had never oraved be
fore. Ife gave his life and his busi
ness fully to his Uird. When he re
turned home he continued to pray.
Things commenced to change. His
child was restored to health. He
staged a remarkable business
, "come-back". j
And now for his present letter: j
"Perhaps you remember my story j
concerning the little three word

I made up my ml ml that if I ever :

Jesus Tecches the People
MASTER TELLS HOW SONS OF GOD SHOULD LIVE
By NEWMAN CAMPBELL
THERE HAS never been a
time in the world's history when
men and women who believe m
the things Jesus taught in his
Sermon on the Mount were so
much needed, as today
The world is sick, but what
hope and healthfulnexs could be
ob'..med if this great sermon
couid be taken to heart by all
the peoples of the earth, and
practiced. We have many new
drugs that help to tiring physical
health to those who are suffering
bodily ills, but there are no sulfa
drugs, penicillin, and other magic
substances that will comfort
those who mourn, who are per
secuted, who need mercy shown
them, or who are discriminated
against because of something that
they cannot help or change.
Crowds of people followed
Jesus everywhere some out of
curiosity, probably, many because
they loved lo listen to Him and
believed w hat He told them. The
latter were His disciples.
Seeing the multitudes of people
who followed Him. Jesus went up
into a mountain in the spring of
27 A. D We do not know what
mountain it was. but when He
had reached the top. He sat down
as was customary with teach
ers in those days and "taught
What did He teach? Not
science, not history, or grammar
Scripture Matthew 5-7.
"Ye have heard it said (refer
ring to the old Jewish law). Thou
shalt love thy neighbor, and hate
thine enemy, but I say unto you
Love your enemies, and pray for
them that persecute you."
If you love only those who love
you, how much better are you
than others? Jesus asks. Every
one loves friends and neighbors,
but what of strangers that are
within our gates, or those who do
not like us7 Do we make th
strangers feel at home and happy
in a new lana instead of calling
them "foreigners" and ignoring
them ? Do we try to find out why
some folk dislike us. and strive
to see if the fault lies with us?
Jesus hated hypocrites. The
Scribes and Pharisees, who were
very careful to observe all the
forms and ceremonies of the law,
were often targets of his right
eous wrath. The giver to charit
able causes who wants everyone
to know how generous he has
been, or who gives because his
neighbor does, is rebuked by
Him "Therefore when thou doest
thine alms, do not sound a trum
pet before thee, as the hypocrites
do in the synagogues and in the
streets, that they may have
glory of men . . . But when thou
doest alms, let not thy left hand
know what thy right hand doeth."
"And when thou prayest. thou
shalt not be as the hypocrites

These were the standards of
Christian living the mora,! laws
that His followers should keep
as their ideals and pursue un
ceasingly. "Blessed are they," said Jesus,
"who are poor in spirit." Whether
they are rich or poor in this
world's goods, they need not be
proud. Like Jesus Himself, they
ncd not think of themselves, but
of others, and. forgetting their
earthly condition, yet do good
deeds, and practice His teachings.
"Blessed are those that mourn,
for they shall be comforted."
When grief comes to some people,
they shut themselves up. concen
trate on their sorrow, and mourn
unceasingly Others and these
are the mourners who shall be
comforted realize that because
of their own grief they under

"After this manner pray ye,"
