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 case of mental surgery

A few winters ago, I began to notice some discomfort in my right foot nearly every day as I strapped on heavy-duty boots and made my way through snowy Boston to work. I didn’t think a whole lot about it at first, chalking up the discomfort to my boots, thinking that maybe I had laced them too tightly.

Mother-love erases hip pain

At the beginning of 2013, a painful condition developed—first in one of my hips and then in the other. Remembering that my late mother had had a hip replacement, I became afraid that perhaps I was heading down the same path.

Back on the tennis court

When I was in high school, tennis was a big part of my life. I competed on my school’s varsity team all four years, and during some off-seasons I helped manage the boys’ tennis team.

Twisted ankle was a dream

A few years ago I had a dream in which, while out on a walk, I suddenly twisted my ankle. The pain in the dream was so vivid that it startled me awake.

Quick healing from burn

I would like to give gratitude for a recent quick healing that occurred this January. My wife and I were making dinner, and we were in a bit of a hurry.

Healed after ingesting poison

I live in Tanzania, in East Africa. On December 21, 2013, I spent the day just fine, doing my duties at home, as usual.

Quick healing of flu symptoms

Last winter everyone in my household began complaining about cold or flu symptoms, except me. Then, one morning, I woke up feeling feverish and congested.

God's healing embrace

Early last year, I carried my painting supplies down into a friend’s basement and realized that I’d done it without pain. I felt so free that I turned around and went back up and down the stairs again with delight.

Freed from pain and fatigue

One summer a number of years ago, a couple of friends invited me to spend a week with them at their vacation condo in Portugal. I was delighted to go, but by the time we arrived, I was feeling very ill with widespread pain and extreme fatigue.

No accidents in God's kingdom

Last summer after church, I went out to our backyard to set up a sprinkler on the lawn. I was headed back to the house, when a board that was lying on the ground caught the hem of my pants, throwing me face first onto the concrete.
