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.

Healed of an internal growth

I was introduced to Christian Science a year after my husband passed away. My early study of Christian Science helped me overcome many different challenges our young family was facing.

Distance no obstacle to healing

Several years ago, I had an experience that taught me the power of Christian Science treatment, regardless of distance. My husband and I took our children to a remote part of Guatemala for a family retreat at Lake Atitlán.

Out of a bad drug trip to spiritual freedom

One summer many years ago I went through one of my greatest challenges—the use of recreational drugs. At college and in home circles, many friends and relatives were into heavy alcohol and drug use.

Child’s quick healing

It is with much gratitude that I share a recent healing of my younger son. While visiting my parents in Florida, my five-year-old woke up complaining about a sharp pain in his stomach.

Healing of accident's aftereffects

Through the years I’ve had many healings as a result of prayer. Some were quick healings, and others required the spiritual discipline of persistent prayer over a period of time.

Shoulder pain gone

I was waking every day, feeling as if I’d slept awkwardly on an arm, and my mornings were becoming increasingly unpleasant. A chronic pain had been developing in my shoulder over the course of several months.

Throat condition healed

As a commercial real estate manager, I was thrilled one day to hear that my company had the opportunity, at the 11th hour, to submit a proposal to a prospective tenant to move their business’s headquarters into our largest vacant property. However, we knew that if we won the tenant, we would have a very short period in which to complete an extensive construction project on the property.

Recollection of my earliest healing

Growing up, I went to school in a large city in France. In middle school we had two hours of physical education every week.

Forgiveness heals eye swelling

Christ Jesus’ ministry illustrates forgiveness and unconditional love, and as I prayed one day to understand Christly love, I found an opportunity to express this love myself. I was putting on eyeliner one morning and noticed that one eye was tender.

Chronic bleeding stopped

For a year and a half, I struggled with a chronic issue of blood and other symptoms. Since I wasn’t in any pain, I reasoned that I could live with it, and I almost came to accept this condition as part of my being.
