In the acute danger that may be coming to Scriptural believers, it is well to remember carefully both the will and the power of God. The evangelist, Charles Inglis, records an example of the melting power of God. A lady stood up in a prayer meeting in an Eastern city and spoke as follows:—”Some years since my husband was travelling in Europe, and I was left alone with my maids in a large, lonely house in a western State. One evening, after our usual reading and prayer, we retired to our several rooms. As I entered my room, I happened to look into a mirror at the opposite side of the room, and was horrified to see the reflection of a man crouching behind my wardrobe. I was tempted to cry aloud for help, but knew it would be useless, and determined to put the faith in God .about which we had been reading, to the test. I walked as courageously as possible, though trembling in every limb, across the floor, took my Bible from the table, and sank into a chair. In a voice as steady as I could make it I began reading aloud the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah. I then knelt and prayed aloud, telling God how we were unprotected women, and imploring Him to protect us from thieves and robbers and all evil persons. I had barely risen and sunk once more into the seat, when a hand was laid on my shoulder and a voice said: 'Do not cry out or be frightened, for you are perfectly safe. I came here to rob this house, but that chapter is one I used to hear my mother read, and your prayer reminded me of the prayers she offered. I am going now. You need fear nothing.' " After the prayer meeting, a man came up to the woman and said:—"I suppose you would forgive a person an injury they had done you, no matter how great it was?" "Yes," she said. "Well" said the man, “I know the story you told to-night is true, for I am the thief you told about, and your reading the Bible and your prayer that night led to my becoming a Christian."
