August 17
MORNING

Pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. - Pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.

I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. - Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

EVENING

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place therof shall know it no more.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom. - What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. - The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. - Use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. - Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

PSA. 103:15,16. Psa. 90:12. Mark 8:36. Isa. 40:7,8. I John 2:17. II Cor. 6:2. I Cor. 7:31. Heb. 10:24,25.
