TOWN INTERCESSORY SERVICE AT BARRY. TOUQUNG ADDRESS BY THE RECTOR OF BARRY. Under the auspices of the Ministers' Fraternal Association, a town united service of intercession was held on Sunday evening at the Romilly Hall, Parry. wlwn the ball was Qrg^^L and the p^. I aa—tmmmmi m rttf — r ivn r v ceedings throughout were most impressive. At the invitation of Mr J. A. Hughes, the chairman of the District Council, there was also a good attendance of the public of the town, seats being reserved for the members of the District Council, School Board, and the local representatives of the Board of Guardians, amongst these being Messrs J. Arthur Hughes, J. A. Manaton, W. Paterson, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, W. Thomas (auctioneer), T. J. Morgan, J. R. Llewellyn, etc. There was also a numerous attendance of local ministers of the gospel, including the Revs H. H. Stewart, M.A. (reetor of Barry and Porthkerry), Christmas J. Lewis, T. Pandy John, J. Mydyr Evans, C. J. Clarke, J. Lewis Jenkins, W. Ingli James, W. Williams, Ben Evans, Wesley Guard, and D. H. Williams, M.A. The service was conducted by the Rev Christmas J. Lewis, and there was in attendance a united choir of about a hundred voices, under the direction of Mr E. W. Waite and Mr F. E. Murrell. The service was taken part in by the Revs C. J. Clarke, W. Ingli James, Ben Evans, J. Mydyr Evans, and J. Lewia Jenkins, and the Rev H. H. Stewart delivered an impressive address, which touched the large congregation into deep and reverent emotion, and all, at the invitation of the Rector, spontaneously united in a silent offering of prayer for the restoration of the King, followed by a united repetition of the Lord's Prayer. In the course of his address-, the Rector said-My friends, we are gathered here for one purpose, and that is to pray therefore words must be very few. You are not here to listen, but for one purpose to pray. The experiences of the past week have been in many respects remarkable. It seems to me that the lesson is on the very surface, that is, that the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. God has in a very remarkable way this week asserted His supremacy. Man proposes, but God disposes. Probably never in the history of this great Empire have such preparations been made as have so nearly reached completion and perfection in London during the past few days in anticipation of the Coronation of the King. All eyes have been centred upon one precious life in this Kingdom and throughout the world, but that one life has been quivered on the verge of death. God has been speaking, and it is for us to listen. Our first prayer is that God will restore this life and give it renewed strength. But our prayer must not end there-it will be in- complete. We pray earnestly for the recovery of our gracious King. and then that that life be directed, sanctified, and governed for holy and for noble uses, for the highest welfare of this Empire and the bettering of the world. May the King' realise-as his Royal mother always realised- that the best thing he can pray for is that the kingdom over which he reigns be founded on righteousness. The strength of this Empire is a poor thing to pray for unless the world be better for this strength. We pray for a life restored, and then that that life be dedicated to holy service. God may have purposes for us and for our King in this sickness; and, I trust in what we may now anticipate, his recovery—purposes of blessing which will wait on the nation's prayer. You are here to pray, and I would ask you to unite for a few moments in silent prayer, silently that we may the better realise the presence of God, and that He is King over all the world. Let us be humble, and then let us pray earnestly and fervently for the recovery of our King.—The National Anthem was sung at the close of the service, and a collection was made in aid of the funds of the Barry Nursing Association.
