    Once more I write, Set your affections on things above; love one another; commune at the table of our Lord in one 6spirit; worship in spirit and in truth; and if daily adoring, imploring, and living the divine Life, Truth, Love, thou shalt partake of the bread that cometh down from heaven, 9drink of the cup of salvation, and be baptized in Spirit.

Prayer for Country and Church

    Pray for the prosperity of our country, and for her vic12tory under arms; that justice, mercy, and peace continue to characterize her government, and that they shall rule all nations. Pray that the divine presence may still guide and 15bless our chief magistrate, those associated with his executive trust, and our national judiciary; give to our congress wisdom, and uphold our nation with the right arm of His 18righteousness.

    In your peaceful homes remember our brave soldiers, whether in camp or in battle.1 Oh, may their love of coun21try, and their faithful service thereof, be unto them life-preservers! May the divine Love succor and protect them, as at Manila, where brave men, led by the dauntless 24Dewey, and shielded by the power that saved them, sailed victoriously through the jaws of death and blotted out the Spanish squadron.

27    Great occasion have we to rejoice that our nation, which 15 15:1fed her starving foe, — already murdering her peaceful seamen and destroying millions of her money, — will be 3as formidable in war as she has been compassionate in peace.      1This refers to the war between United States and Spain for the liberty of Cuba.
