Excerpt from Prayer for Colleges: A Premium Essay The subject of this Essay divides itself into two parts - prayer in general, and prayer for colleges. The first three chapters are devoted to the former; the latter fills the remaining chapters. It may perhaps be thought that the discussion of the subject of prayer in general is too extended, if t quite superfluous. But in the opinion of the writer, the weak point of the church in our day lies just here; and it would be of little avail to present colleges, or any other ohject of prayer, in all its magnitude and importance, unless Christians in general can be brought up to a higher appreciation of the efficacy of prayer and to a more vigorous appliance of it as the most potent of Heaven's appointed means for the salvation of men.
