McGUFFEY Should be the everyday, of the Christian. in I Thessaloni- "pray without ceasing." with the Lord day would eliminate which Christians are overcome by their they haven't learned them. thrilling thought to know wants us to talk to so great and powerful Yet He dongs for us to With Him in prayer, But :they can not pray to God because they do not to say, They have the have to have the linoldgy and that you how to use the words "Thou". But God is not With terminology. God is about the attitude of your you to come Him what you need. We that God desires to and then just start talk- are two rea- to why we do not re- Lord. The first one is, because ye ask not." things God desires He has made ask- for receiving. You reason we do not re- Lord is because "ye that ye may consume it Our asking of selfish. We are not that would or that would be else, but we are satisfy our own selfish have the motive right in then we need to pray 5:16 says, "the ef- fectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." How often it is that our prayers are cold and formal and lifeless. We pray out of routine, making sure our words are proper and our posture is right. Some like to discuss the proper posture of the heart than the posture of the body. He wants our prayers to be fervent. We need to get down to business and petition God. I once heard a poem recited by a preacher, which shows the impor- tance of being fervent in prayer. I liked it so well that I played the tape of the message over several times so I could copy the poem. The au- thor is unknown to me, but I hope you enjoy it too. '~'he proper way for men to pray," said Deacon Samuel Keyes "and the only proper attitude is down upon your knees." "no, I should say the way to pray," said Rev. Dr. Wise, "Is standing straight with out- stretched arms and rapt and upturned eyes." '~3h, no, no, no," said Elder Slow "such posture is too proud. A man should pray with eyes fast closed, and head entirely bowed." "It seems to me his hands should be serenely clasped in front his thumbs both pointing toward the ground," said Rev. Dr. Blunt. "1 fell in Hidgkin's well, head first," said Willie Brown. "Both feet were sticking in the air, and my head was pointed down. And I prayed a prayer right then and there. I guess the best prayer I ever said. The prayingest prayer I ever prayed, I was standing on my head." e By ST. CHARLES PARISH Peter Claver gave himself the title "the slaves of slaves forever." Born in Verdu near Barcelona, Spain in 1580, Peter graduated from the University of Barcelona. At the age of twenty, he joined the Society of the Jesuits and sailed to Palma, Majorca to attend the College of Monteslone, While studying under St. Alphonsus Rodriguex, he re- quested permission to become a missionary in the New World. After further training in Barce- lona, he arrived in Cartagena, Co- lombia, South America in 1610. Cartagena, an important seaport on the northwestern Caribbean coast, was a center of slave trade. Every month nearly a thousand slaves passed through this port from West Africa. Their travel conditions were so deplorable that nearly a third of the ships passengers died in transit. They were then held in pens before they were sent to work in the mines or on the nearby plantations of the area. Peter Claver worked with Fr. Al- fonso de Sandoval in bringing re- lieve to these shiploads of slaves. Visiting with them in their pens, they brought them food, medicines, cloth- ing and a sense of human dignity. For forty years, Peter continued to minister to every shipload that en- tered this port. He made visits to the mine and the plantation owners en- couraging better treatment of these people. Many times he would lodge in the slave quarters to make sure the few laws protecting them were enforced. His apostolate extended to the care of the condemned prisoners COVERAGE ~ation, contact: EON SERVICES JGTON ST. 24901 3666 r~ Let experts at tn your eyes.

His Bishop often referred to him as another Francis Xavier. At the age of seventy he contacted a plague. He struggled for four more years to continue his life's work. On his death the entire city of Cart- agena, including the public officials who scorned his activities, mourned his passing at a public funeral. He was canonized in 1888. Eight years later Pope Leo XIII declared him the worldwide patron saint of all mis- sionary work among the blacks. In teaching us to "speak with our hands before we speak with out lips," Saint Peter Claver is remem- bered with a feast day on Septem- berg.
