PRAYER FOR MISSIONS.

BY MRS. LYDIA H. SIGOURNEY.

[ocr errors]

Night wraps the realm where Jesus woke,

No guiding star the magi see, And heavy hangs oppression's yoke

Where first the Gospel said " be free." And where the harps of angels bore

High message to the shepherd-throng, “Good will and peace” are heard no more

To murmur Bethlehem's vales along. Swarth India, with her idol-train,

Bends low by Ganges' worshipped tide, Or drowns the suttee's shrink of pain

With thundering gong and pagan pride. On Persia's hills the Sophi grope ;

Dark Burmah greets salvation's ray ; Even jealous China's door of hope

Unbars to give the Gospel way. Old Ocean, with his isles, awakes,

Cold Greenland feels unwonted flame, And humble Afric wondering takes

On her sad lips a Saviour's name. Their steps the forest-children stay,

Bound to oblivion's voiceless shore, And lift their red brows to the day,

Which from the opening skies doth pour.
Then aid with prayer that holy light

Which from eternal death can save,
And bid Christ's heralds speed their flight,
Ere millions find a hopeless grave.

Lord, I confess this morning I remembered my breakfast but forgot my prayers. And as I have returned no praise, so thou mightst justly have afforded me no protection. Yet thou hast carefully kept me to the middle of this day, entrusted me with a new debt before I have paid the old score. It is now noon, too late for a morning, too soon for an evening sacrifice. My corrupt heart prompts me to put off my prayers till night, but I know it too well, or rather too ill, to trust it. I fear if till night I defer them, at night I shall forget them. Be pleased therefore now to accept them. Lord, let not a few hours the later make a breach ; especially seeing (be it spoken pot to excuse my negligence but to implore thy pardon) a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday. I promise hereafter by thy assistance to bring forth fruit in due season. See how I am ashamed the sun should shine on me, who now newly start in the race of my devotions, when he like a giant hath run more than half his course in the heavens.- Fuller.

Lord, this day casually I am fallen into a bad company, and know not how I came hither, or how to get hence. Sure I am, not my improvidence hath run me, but thy providence hath led me into this danger. I was not wandering in any base by-path, but walking in the highway of my vocation ; wherefore, Lord, thou that calledst me hither, keep me here. Stop their mouths that they speak no blasphemy, or stop my ears that I hear none; or open my mouth soberly to reprove what I hear. Give me to guard myself, but, Lord, guard my guarding of my. self. Let not the smoke of their badness put out my eyes, but the shining of my innocency lighten theirs. Let me give physic to them, and noi take infection from them. Yea, make me the better for their bad. ness. Then shall their bad company be to me like the dirt of oysters, whose mud hath soap in it, and doth rather scour than defile.-Fuller.
