"Thy kingdom come"

In all great movements there come times when the need is felt for a revival, or renewing of the spirit. The original idea is not lost, but faith seems dimmed, or overcharged with nonessentials that assume importance quite out of proportion to the animus of the work, which is to keep the vision clear, the high goal always ahead. The world presses hard; affairs loom large which, since they are concerned with the welfare or even the very existence of nations and peoples, cannot be ignored, but must take their place in the ordered thinking and overcoming of everyday problems.

This seeming unrest is not impatience, but presages a longing for more light, for stronger faith, and for a zeal that breaks mere routine. Our armor seems dull and tarnished. What will brighten it?
