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 childlike acceptance of healing

Once while our family was living in Jerusalem, my five-year-old daughter saw me lying on the couch, suffering from a sudden onset of physical illness. I had managed a few quiet, prayerful thoughts, reaching out to God for healing and seeking a clearer sense of my true harmonious being as God’s child.

Chronic Sore Healed

Not long ago I noticed that a sore had developed on my lip. It was painful, and for months it did not heal.

Mind’s unchanging picture

Over a year ago I had an opportunity to go deeper into my “spiritual closet,” looking for greater understanding of what it means to be wholly spiritual. A rash had developed in an area on my skin that was visible to me, as well as others.

Internal disorder healed

After spending a post-Christmas vacation with our son and his family in Virginia, my wife and I began our 14-hour car trip back home to Indiana. We had had a perfectly wonderful and fun-filled time with our son’s family, which included a tour of the naval destroyer of which our son is captain and bringing in the New Year at their home.

Entertaining angels brings healing

This writer shares a significant healing.

Eating disorder, sense of inadequacy healed

Have you ever wondered: Who am I? Am I important? Does my life matter? If people like me, am I more worthy? If they don’t, is there something inferior about me? These were some of the questions that plagued me until I realized my true identity as God’s beloved child. During many years of a verbally and emotionally abusive marriage, my sense of self-worth eroded away, and I found myself dealing with anorexia.

Intense fear before flight dispelled

The Bible tells us in many varied ways that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” ( Psalms 46:1 ). One place we find assurances of protection and safety under God’s care is in the ninety-first Psalm.

No more Knee pain

I love the promise of Hymn No. 124 :  How gentle God’s commands,     How kind His precepts are;  Come, cast your burdens on the Lord,     And trust His constant care.

Healing proof of Church’s ‘utility’

While driving home from a Wednesday evening testimony meeting at my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I started to feel pain in my mouth. I remember my first thought was, “Well, I’ll have a testimony to share at next week’s testimony meeting.

Healed of substance abuse and panic attacks

In late 1991, a few days before the new year, I was sitting on my couch drinking and smoking marijuana. I was raised in Christian Science, and I always believed its teachings to be true.
