The Methodist chaplain
at one of the city's leading
hospitals recently ap-
proached me with a ques-
tion that was apparently a
matter of some disturbance
to him. It seems that, when
visiting Jewish patients, his
offer to make a prayer for
their recovery was often po-
litely rejected, with a smile
and "No, thank you!"
He asked me why Jews
would turn him down. "Af-
ter all," he reasoned, I am a
man of God. I'm at the hos-
pital to serve the spiritual
needs of the infirm. Every-
body else seems very de-
lighted by my offer, but the
Jews refuse!"
I explained to him that
Jewish patients probably
presume that he wouldpray
for them to Jesus Christ,
being a Christian, and they
wouldn't feel there is much
value for them in such a
prayer. "Oh, no," said he.
"For the Jewish patients, I
would pray to God, not to
Jesus!" "Well," said I,
"when you say 'God' don't
you mean Jesus Christ,
At this point, the
Methodist minister was
forced to admit that he
did think of God as Jesus
Christ, and he had never
in his life questioned the
divinity of Jesus Christ.
Then I explained to him

that those Jewish
patients who declined to
receive his blessings or
his offer of prayers were
not being disrespectful or
discourteous in any way;
they were just following a
well-established tradi-
tion among Jews that
Jewish prayer or prayer
for Jews is best when of-.
fered by Jews in the pre-
cincts of their own
houses of prayer.
I gave the Methodist
minister an example of this
from Jewish history. When
Mordehai wrote.the Book of
Esther to record the mira-
cles and the events that took
place in his day in ancient
Persia, he intentionally
made not a single reference
to the name of God. As a re-
sult of this,. the Book of
Esther remains one of the
few books of the Bible in
which God's name is not
even mentioned once. -
' Mordehai did this be-
cause he knew that the
Book of Esther was ear-
marked for inclusion in the
chronicles of the kings of
Persia. The royal scribes,
when coming across the
name of God would write
"Ahura Mazda," the name
of their divinity, and thus
the 'whole Book of Esther
would become a work in
praise of that idolatry. Mor-
dehai reasoned, "Better to
omit the name of God al-
together than chance the

profanation of the Divine
I feel the Methodist
minister was satisfied by
my response. Christians
may pray to God through
Jesus Christ, Moslems pray
to Allah through Moham-
med, and Hindus try to
reach the Rama Krishna
through their own tradi-

Despite Bailey E. Smith's
misguided musings, the
Almighty hears them all, as
is confirmed in the liturgy of
the Daily Prayer Book —
"for Thou hearest the
prayer of every mouth . . ."
But Christian prayer
, should probably be reserved
for Christians.
