Cure for Epidemics

Weatherford (Texas) News

1. Stop talking and thinking about contagious diseases.

2. On arising in the morning repeat the Lord's Prayer in the spirit of holiness.

3. As soon as breakfast is over, before taking up your duties of the day, take your Bible and carefully read the Ninety-first Psalm, knowing "that God is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." You might linger over the lines of this beautiful Psalm: "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. . . . Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation ; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." (You will observe that David said, " His truth shall be thy shield and buckler." Evidently David had more faith in God's protecting power than he had in vaccine virus and poisonous lotions.)
