Testimonies of Healing

Verification of Healings

The healings we publish are verified by people who can vouch for the testifier or who know of the healing. Examples of Christian healing from individuals and families around the world have been published in the Christian Science periodicals for well over a century.

The most recently-published testimonies are at the top.

A quick healing in the night

Recently, I woke up with a start in the middle of the night. My throat was suddenly sore.

Alarming physical condition healed

I feel very fortunate to have been brought up in a Christian Science home. Although I drifted away from Science several times in my youth, all through adulthood I have had many healings as a result of practicing it, and none has been more appreciated than the one I relate here.

An end to periods of immobility and pain

I offer this testimony as encouragement to anyone praying about a long-standing difficulty. Some years ago, I struggled with immobility and intense pain for periods ranging from several weeks to a couple of months.

Injured Ankle healed

One day this past summer, I was carrying my son down a small flight of stairs. On the last step, my shoe slipped and I stepped down awkwardly on my ankle and felt it crack.

Healing of an eye injury

It is with great joy that I share my appreciation for Christian Science and the healing power of prayer. Last summer while living at my remote cabin on an island in the Bering Sea, off Alaska, I injured my eye when a bungee cord I was attaching to my all-terrain vehicle came off and hit my eye with full force.

Business crisis resolved

On the Friday before Memorial Day weekend, my employees and I were in a hurry to submit a bid on a major contract before the close of business that day. In the process of rushing to finish in time, we overlooked one part of the bid.

Cat healed of disease

Last year our beloved cat became very sick. My wife and I had been praying for our cat, but at a family member’s insistence, one day we brought him to a veterinarian’s office, where he was diagnosed as having cancer.

A college runner’s spiritual growth and healing

When you’re yearning for healing, it can sometimes be tempting to accept a burdensome sense of personal obligation—namely, that it’s our duty to come up with a grand or transformative realization that will bring about good results. I’d often felt an intense personal responsibility about praying, and while I do continue to pray conscientiously, I’ve come to realize how unproductive it is to feel personally responsible for the unfoldment of good in my life; I need to trust God, who is the source of all good, with the outcome of my prayers.

Healed of sensual longing

Love is expressed through affection, caring, compassion, support, devotion, tenderness, and many other qualities necessary to our everyday living. God, ever-present Love, is with us, and is the source of all these supporting qualities.

Painful internal condition healed

Last summer my husband and I flew across the country to meet our daughter and son-in-law for a long-anticipated vacation. Early in the morning just before the last day of the trip, I began to feel some internal discomfort.
