touched with the feeling of our infirmities

By A.B. Simpson


      Some time ago I was talking with a greatly suffering woman about healing. She was quite burdened physically and sincerely wanted to be able to trust the Lord for deliverance. After a short conversation I prayed with her, committing her case to the Lord, asking that in absolute trust she might claim deliverance. As soon as I ended my prayer she grasped my hand and asked me to unite with her in the burden that was most upon her heart. And then, without a word of reference to her own healing or the burden under which she was being crushed to death, she burst into an impassioned prayer for an orphan boy of whom she had just heard that day. Never have I heard a prayer surpass it for sympathy and love, as she implored God in agonizing sobs to help him and save him. And then she ceased without even referring to her own need. I was deeply touched by the spectacle of love, and I thought how the Father's heart must be touched for her own need.
