Example text

The father of the family prays for wife and child on special occasions as well as in his regular devotions. The Ku-Bushman calls to Hue: " Why is my son sick? Make him well again! " Especially is parental solicitude manifested when a daughter is affianced or married. Among the Ainu, the father of the PRIMITIVE PRAYER 23 bride on the occasion of the engagement, offers a prayer to his fire divinity for his daughter and son-in-law: " We have, here and now, agreed to join in marriage our son and our daughter, therefore, 0 Goddess of Fire, hear thou and be a witness thereof.

Their contents are determined for the most part by related problems of philosophy; ethical and religious points of view modify the simple, religious experience. But even when the theological presuppositions are not determined by extra-religious philosophical motives, but are taken from religious experience itself, still faithfulness to the actual facts of the life of prayer may be sacrificed to these determining ideas. This is never so in the case of the great non-theological men of prayer. And yet such theologies of prayer help us in many ways to gain some knowledge of the religious experience of the author, sometimes even valuable psychological hints, as in the section dedicated to prayer in Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion.

But if once through necessity the intercourse with higher beings is opened up and PRAYER help and deliverance follow on the prayer, man is thereafter led to pray, not only by the menace to his bare existence, but by the desire for an intensification, enhancement, and enrichment of life. The primitive hunter desires success in hunting, the fisherman a plentiful catch, the merchant abundant profit, the farmer a rich harvest, and so on. Thus the wish appears as the second motive of prayer. " Since the fulfilment of the effort and the desire is not in the hands of man, the feeling of dependence is awakened; but the consciousness that all happiness rests on the will of higher beings, who have already given their aid in times of stress, kindles a trust which then releases the na'ive expression of the wish in prayer to God.
