A Proof of God's Power to Heal

I feel that I can truly say with the Psalmist, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."

In October, 1896, while living at Kelly, Kan., our little daughter, then only three years old, was very low with membranous croup. After several days of constant care and worry, and as many sleepless nights, our physician came, bringing with him another physician. After consultation, they said that she would pass away before morning They said, however, that there was one more remedy that might possibly save her. That was, to heat irons and put into a tub of lime wate beside her bed; also, to spray her throat with some of the lime water every twenty minutes and no time was lost in following the directions. By midnight it was evident that the remedy was not helping her, for she constantly grew weaker, and when taken up for those treatments, she would look up with such a pitiful look, it seemed almost more than I could bear. I prayed to God, almost constantly, to spare us our child, but still continued to follow the directions. Morning came, she was still alive. The doctor said she would soon pass away.
