The full text of this tract for believers is shown below in the KJV version.
Some years ago, a lady, who tells the story herself, went to consult a famous physician about her health. She was an anxious woman, whose troubles—and she had many—had worried and upset her to such a degree that the strain threatened her physical and mental health. She gave the doctor a list of her symptoms, and answered his questions, only to be astonished at this brief prescription at the end: “What you need is to read your Bible more.”
“But, doctor,” began the bewildered patient.
“Go home and read your Bible an hour a day,” the great man reiterated with kindly authority. “Then come back to me a month from today.” He scheduled her appointment, and quickly but kindly sent her on her way.
At first his patient was inclined to be angry. Then she reflected that, at least, the prescription was not an expensive one. Besides, it certainly had been a long time since she had read the Bible regularly. She reflected with a pang of conscience how earthly cares had crowded out prayer and Bible study for years. Though she would have resented being called an irreligious woman, she had undoubtedly become a most careless Christian. She went home and decided to make every effort to follow the doctor’s orders.
In one month she went back to his office. “Well,” he said, smiling as he looked at her face, “I see you are an obedient patient, and have taken my prescription faithfully. Do you feel as if you need any other medicine now?”
“No, doctor, I don’t,” she said honestly. “I feel like a different person. But how did you know that was just what I needed?”
The famous physician turned to his desk. There, worn and marked, lay an open Bible. With deep earnestness, the doctor spoke to his patient. “If I were to omit my daily reading of this Book, I would lose my greatest source of strength and skill. I never perform surgery without reading my Bible. I never tackle a difficult case without finding help in its pages. Some people require medical treatment. Your case did not call for medicine, but for sources of peace and strength outside your own mind. I showed you my own prescription, and I knew it would work.”
“Yet, I confess, doctor,” said his patient, “that I almost didn’t take it.”
“I find that very few are willing to try it,” said the physician, smiling again. “But there are many, many cases in my practice where it would work wonders if they only would.”
This is a true story. The doctor died several years ago, but his prescription remains and can be used by all. Won’t you give it a try? Let the Lord, through His Word, take your worries and cares away.

How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.
