of their diseased bodies and minds will be sure.—Testimonies for the Church 3:184. HL 237.5

1023. After the physicians [of the Health Institute] have done what they can in behalf of the sick, they ask God to work with their efforts, and restore the suffering invalids to health. This he has done in some cases in answer to the prayer of faith. And this he will continue to do, if they are faithful, and put their trust in him.—Testimonies for the Church 2:184. HL 238.1

1024. God does not work miracles where he has provided means by which the work may be accomplished.—The Review and Herald, July 17, 1888. HL 238.2

1025. Faith without intelligent works is dead, being alone. Faith in the healing power of God will not save unless it is combined with good works.—Unpublished Testimonies, August 25, 1897. HL 238.3

1026. God will not work a miracle to change natural causes which you can control.—The Signs of the Times, May 8, 1884. HL 238.4

1027. Many would not endure the time of trial, and will therefore be laid away.—Unpublished Testimonies. HL 238.5

1028. Where the way is clear for the offering up of prayer for the sick, the case should be committed to the Lord in calm faith, not with a storm of excitement. He alone is acquainted with the past life of the individual, and knows what his future will be.... All that we are required to do is to ask God to raise up the sick if in accordance with his will, believing that he hears the reasons which we present, and the fervent prayers offered. If the Lord sees that it will best honor him, he will answer our prayers. But to urge recovery without submission to his will, HL 238.6
