An Ancient Prayer
Oh, Lord, I implore thee to bless all mankind. Bring us to thyself. Keep us to dwell with Thee.
This prayer has been sent to me and is to be sent to all the world.
It is said in ancient times that all who wrote it would be free from calamity, that all who passed it by would meet with misfortune.
Copy it and send it to nine person within nine days, and on that day you will receive some great joy.
Do not break the chain. Sign no name. Just date received.

"(With the permission of Apr. 9 we'll pass the prayer message along to all of you Times readers, instead of limiting it to nine only, and will trust you Times readers to keep the chain intact. - Ed. that is, Apr. 12, 1915)"
