Praying away a tooth ache

From John Wesley’s journal of Nov. 12, 1746:

In the evening at the chapel, my teeth pained me much. In coming home, Mr. Spear gave me an account of the rupture he had had for some years, which after the most eminent Physicians had declared it incurable, was perfectly cured in a moment. I prayed with submission to the will of God. My pain ceased, and returned no more.

  1. I love these tidbits sprinkled throughout JW’s journal. When seminaries only require students to read a few of Wesley’s sermons, they are short-changed.

    1. I agree, especially when the semis are chosen to present a picture of Wesley that does not really match his ministry.
