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.

Mental surgery opens the way for a family

Several years after my husband and I were married, we were looking forward to having a family. When we were expecting our first child, the baby arrived nearly four months early and did not survive.

Severe hip and back pain healed

It is with great gratitude, awe, and joy that I write this testimony. Throughout my life I have always read the Christian Science periodicals starting from the back so that I could read the testimonies of healing first.

Deep cut healed quickly

One weekend about a year ago, I was planning to go to a family party and decided to get a professional pedicure beforehand. The salon attendant who took care of me suddenly became disoriented and accidentally cut my foot with a sharp tool.

Learning disability overcome

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” ( Proverbs 3:5, 6 ).

Prayer dissolves disturbance

A few months ago I felt nauseous and became ill. My fear was that I would faint, and although I was at home, there would be no one around to help me.

Congenital brain condition healed

When our first baby was born, the doctor said something was wrong with her, and he would have to operate the next morning. I asked my husband to phone the Christian Science practitioner who had been supporting me through the pregnancy and the birth, and let her know something wasn’t right with our baby.

Quick healing of sudden illness

“I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints” ( Psalms 85:8 ). The words of the Psalmist have been a constant guide to me in my growth as a student of Christian Science, and have often been a helpful impetus in being more effective in my healing practice.

Healing found in a moment of extremity

One day last year, while moving about in my apartment, I went to take a step, but my slipper stuck to the carpet, and I fell forward, hitting my head and landing forcibly on my right arm and side. I was unable to move much, and it was painful and most awkward to find a way to get back up.

Lump healed

Over the course of several years a small lump under my arm developed and then grew to a noticeable size. I wore tops with sleeves to avoid people making comments, but since there were no other inconveniences caused, I basically ignored it.

Medical diagnosis overturned

When I was about to start graduate school many years ago, I got a notice from the school informing me that I needed to take a physical examination as part of the admission requirements. When I explained to the admission office that I was a Christian Scientist and therefore would like to be given an exemption, they told me that I still needed to take a tuberculosis test.
