But they never ask I]im for anything. They do not think tie is in a I)osition to grant thenl ally favors, and they conseqnently (to not think it is right for tllcm to ask Him for ally. They do not see how God couht answer their prayers without a miracle; and riley do not believe in nliraclcs. The laws of nature are fixed and inlmutable, an[i no interfer- ence with them is possible without a smashup of all nature. God is worshipful becanse He is good; but He is good, and no thanks to Him. He could not be otherwise than good. Then why thank Hfm? As well thank the spring for its bright- ness. As well thank the winter for being cold and the summer for being warm. As well thank the trees and grass for being green and the sky for being blue. As well thank the water for running down hill and the mists for lifting in the morning, as thank God for doing what He cannot help doing, and for what He will do whether we like it or not. Protestants will not ask God for any- thing because the granting of their prayer would interfere with the laws of nature. They belteve ill a future life, and they did not hesitate to ask for favors ill the world to come. But are there no laws governing life in l that world to come? I's it all chaos ind confnsion there? If the future world is better than this, more peace- ful and more orderly--for order is heaven' first htw--we must conclude that it is above all things a worhl of law. If God cannot interfere with the flaws here, how call l-]e interfere with the laws there? If it is irrational to ask for favors in time, is it not equally irrational to ask for favors in eternity? Then wily pray for spiritual benefits any more than for temporal favors? Supplication is the soul of worship. God wants us to ask for everything we need in this life and in the next. "Whatsoever you ask in My name He will give you." He wants us to pray always. It is the one great end of this life of trial. God has placed us under a dispeusation of want. Beeause we want ahvays we would have to pray always. When our first parents sinned !they made the mistake of supposing i that they could get along without God. i'ro denlonstrate the bhmder and to !make the demonstration everlasting He caused them to want, and their want wa to pursue them to the end of "time. "Thou shalt earn thy bread by the sweat of thy hrow." "Thorns and thistles shall spring np in thy path." "Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return."

It is good for the molly grubs. It distrscts us from our present ills. It is soothing to think of a joy, even though we know it is be- yond our reach. Bnt as for any actual effect, the prayer might Just as well be addressed to a stone. The prophets of old told the Pagans of their day that their gods had ears, but could not heal'; that they had eyes, but could not see; that they had feet, but could not walk--implying that the God of Israel, being a living God, had eyes and couht see; had ears, and could (hear; lind feet, and could walk. But what good for the worshipper of the i Go(i of Israel was it that his God could hear, see and walk, if He was in noth- ing influenced by what He saw or heard? The God of the Protestants is a God blind-folded, bound hand and foot by the inexorable law of necessi- ty. He would be a gpod God if He could; but He cannot. Catholics pray to God knowing that their rer is addressed to the King of Ages, and that it, reaches His ear before a;lvthing is made, for He is ves- lerdav lodav and forever.
