He Healeth The Sick.

"The wife of Deacon W. was sinking rapidly with pneumonia. Friends gave

up all hope of her recovery, and even the hopeful physician felt that he

was hoping against hope. In his despair the husband bore the case

directly to God; he sought the prayers of his minister and of the

church; and he asked all Christians to pray that the mother of his

little children might be spared. She lingered between life and death for

several days, when unexpectedly to many, she began to gain strength, and

in due season was about again. This was several years ago, and she has

been an active worker in the church and Sunday-school ever since."
