Is Prayer a Reserve Force?

Boston Times

Recently a noted divine declared, "Parents have no right to pray for their children's lives until they have first done all they can to save them through the science of medicine and surgery."

This is not in keeping with the Scriptural teaching that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." We can scarcely believe that it was the gentleman's intention to assert that man should first exhaust his own strength before leaning upon the omnipotent arm. It is certain that there is no Scriptural authority for regarding God simply as a reserve power. By implicit reliance upon Him we rightly honor Him and reap a reward in harmony.
