To Our Readers

The hamster's name was Nibbles, because of his habit of nibbling the hand that fed him. Eventually my daughter's new pet became accustomed to his surroundings, and he didn't seem to mind when any of us reached into the cage to feed or to pet him.

But one moring we found Nibbles in pretty sad shape, nearly lifeless. The folks at the pet store said there wasn't much we could do if something like this happened. Still, our family decided this was a good opportunity to pray for Nibbles, and so we did.

A day later, nothing much had changed. The following day, same gloomy picture. I couldn't figure out why, having seen prayer heal so many things in our family, there was no improvement in Nibbles. Then, a family member walked by, saw my troubled look, and said, "Don't give up."
