Marvelous arci the answers to prayer recorded in the book entitled, " Dorothea Trudd, or The Prayer of Faith." Dorothea's mother was a woman of great faith, and be- lieved that God provided for her large family and kept them in good health in answer to the prayer of faith. Dor- othea had such faith that hundreds were healed in answer to her prayers, and her name became known all over the world. Travelers in Switzerland often heard about tiie marvelous cures wrought in the remote village of Mamien- dorf in answer to Dorothea Trudd's prayers. Dorothea Trudd was bom in 1813 and died in 1862. She was converted to Christ at twenty-two years of age, after being so deeply convicted of sin that many thought she was dying. Some years after this she was led into a still deeper Christian experience, which she describes as follows : " I persevered in working at my trade for a year, dur- which time the Lord continued to show me much that tended to my self-abasement. I learned that bodily suffer- ing cannot produce conformity to God, even when it is borne with patience ; that the only way in which that grace can be attained is by the outpouring of the love of God in the heart. I did not know before what was meant by be- ing 'nothing,' and yet I had considered myself converted. But now the Lord opened my eyes, and showed me that the annoyance I felt to this hour, when tried by any diffi- culty, arose from the presence of * the old man/ and that if I possessed the love described in i Cor. 13, which *is not easily provoked,' and * seeketh not her own,' I should no longer be provoked to such irritation: from that time the Lord has so strengthened me night and day that the wonders which have taken place in accordance with God's Word will be less marveled at than that I am still spared and strengthened to labor."
