[blocks in formation]

From our files of interesting communications—some asking for aid in sustaining the Gospel among the destitute--some from ministers requesting to be sent where the harvest is plenteous and the laborers are few-and others from missionaries whose toil the Holy Spirit is blessing to the enlargement of Zionwe make a few selections, for reading at the Monthly Concert. And we take occasion to urge upon our readers, and especially upon those whose office it is to lead the devotions of the people in public prayer, to remember the request that comes up in almost every report of every missionary, in all parts of the land—"Brethren, pray for us.” We earnestly desire that this request may not be considered as a mere matter of form, but as the utterance of hearts weighed down with the magnitude of interests, too great for the care of any power less than divine. If any class of laborers in the vineyard of God are doing a work involving great results, and demanding self-denial, faith, wisdom and untiring industry, it is composed of the ministers in our frontier states. And if any portion of the ministry is more separated than others from that personal christian sympathy and co-operation, which strengthen the hands and sustain the hearts of the ambassador of Christ, they are the missionaries in the West.
