Once upon a time, a dear woman struggled to muster enough strength to face the trials that came her way. One worry after another seemed to pile up for her every day. Under the burden of it all, she became quite ill. Finally she went to see her doctor, a fine Christian gentleman who happened to know her and her family. He was aware of some of the disappointments and misfortunes the family had recently endured. He could find nothing organically wrong with the woman, but he told her that he was giving her a prescription that she must take every day for the rest of her life.
