The Prayer of Faith Shall Save the Sick

My three youngest brothers used to go into convulsions due to worms. I can remember sitting by the cradle or bed watching one of them (whichever one was bothered at the time) while they were sleeping, and Mother told me to let her know if I saw them jerk at all. Each time they had a convulsion we would rush for father to come and administer to them. Mother or my older sisters would try to force salt water down through their set teeth to choke the worms. Administration always brought relief.
