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 healing during church

When Mary Baker Eddy founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, she included a provision for Christian Science Reading Rooms. These rooms provide a place where anyone can pray and study Christian Science as well as access the periodicals and books published by The Christian Science Publishing Society.

Daughter’s dental problem overcome

During one of our family’s regular trips to the dentist for cleanings, the dentist said that updated X-rays needed to be taken of my daughter’s mouth—she was eight at the time. The X-rays showed there wasn’t enough room in her mouth for new teeth to come in.

Aftereffects of poisoning healed and a life transformed

Three years ago a new friend and I were having a casual discussion about different religions. She mentioned that she had grown up in the Christian Science faith, and that she had witnessed some amazing healings, accomplished entirely through prayer.

God’s laws bring healing

When I lived in a small village years ago in Mexico, and before I knew about Christian Science, I contracted some sort of disease that manifested itself in open sores, first on one foot, then the other. The sores grew in scope and infected both legs.

Complete freedom restored

A few years ago, I was faced with challenging physical symptoms, including difficulty in breathing, fatigue, and loss of appetite. It was during a time when I was very active in serving as musical and lighting director for an amateur theater company in our community.

Healing of pain and inflammation

Last winter several incidents brought about back pain so severe that I could hardly stand or sit comfortably. I tried a couple of common material remedies, a chiropractor, and holistic medications, but there was no relief.

‘Unblemished, untouched’ by a burn

Gophers destroy gardens. I had a very large garden and decided on a humane approach—often inserting smoke bombs into their tunnels to encourage them to find dwellings elsewhere.

Unhurt by mosquitoes

A few years ago, I took a course to become certified in teaching English as a second language. Then I looked for the right place to spend the next few months in Latin America, where I could practice my Spanish and be of service.

Dancing again—with joy

I love to dance! Dancing is an expression of qualities such as grace, rhythm, discipline, energy, joy, agility, harmony, and coordination. One evening, a few years ago, I had to leave a dance event early because of back pain.

Blessed by Christian Science Nursing Care

A number of years ago, I began to experience severe pain in one hip and leg whenever I tried to sit or bend in any way. I could stand and walk but could not lie down in any position except on my back.
