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.

I was in contact with a Christian Science practitioner within a couple of hours, and she agreed to pray with me for healing.
