Help yourself to "FREE FOOD" and may God Bless all of you. By Rev. Billy Graham Philosophers argued with Paul—but some who heard him were serious searchers for truth. The religions and philosophies of the day had left them empty, and they wanted to know the truth. And they heard it as they listened to Paul tell them about Jesus, and the hope we can have be- cause of Him. Are you searching for the truth? Don't let anything— - or anyone, keep you from Je- sus, "who alone is the way the truth and the life" ( John 14:6). While Paul was in Athens he reasoned in the synagogue with Jews and the God fearing Greeks, as well as in the mar- ket place day by day with those who happened to be there. If anyone wants you to be- lieve that they are your friend, but is trying to separate you from Jesus, please be aware and"run" don't walk away, because that person or per- sons wasn't your friend to be- gin with. Keep spreading the good news of the gospel of Je- sus. And pray for your ene- mies, and non believers. Christ Jesus is our only hope in this corrupt and wick- ed world today.

How can it be changed into the path where evil may be conquered? How can our re- lationship with the Father be- come one of continual prayer? We must begin by going back to God's Word to study the place God intends for prayer to have in the life of His child. A fresh understand- ing of what prayer is and what our prayers can be will free us from our wrong attitudes con- cerning the absolute necessi- ty of continual prayer. We need insight into how reasonable this divine ap- pointment is. We need to be convinced of how it fits in with God's love and our hap- piness. Then we will be freed from the false impression of prayer being an arbitrary de- mand. We will yield to it and rejoice in it as the only way for the blessing of heaven to come to earth. It will no lon- ger be a task and burden of self-effort and strain. As sim- ple as breathing is in the phys- ical life, so will praying be in the Christian life that is led by the Spirit. Our failure in the prayer life is a result of our failure in the spirit life. Any thought of pray- ing more and of praying effec- tively will be in vain unless we are brought into closer intima- cy with our Lord. His life of prayer on earth and of inter- cession in heaven is breathed into us in the measure that our surrender and our faith allow.
