Natal Mercury

In his letter referring to the apathy of the churches towards the present locust invasion and to the need for divine help, which appeared in your Friday's issue, your correspondent, "A Sinner," brings home to many thinking men and women a vital duty propounded by Christ Jesus when he said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God."

The habit of turning to God in prayer for deliverance from pests, famine, sickness, and death is one that not only helps our community but the unhappy state of affairs in the whole world, and the efficacy of righteous prayer has been proved throughout the ages.

May I then be permitted space to say that this prayerful attitude has not been overlooked by the Christian Science churches in Natal and that regarding this scourage of locusts church members, as well as all individual Christian Scientists, feel it a privilege to do what they can to help the situation through co-operating in earnest prayer.
