Healing chronic disease

From the June 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal

There is ample evidence today to attest to the fact: Christian Science treatment heals chronic as well as acute physical disease. A difficulty that may seem to have been hanging on for weeks, months, even years, can be dispelled by the light of divine Truth—the illumination that comes to human consciousness through prayer as the Christ is revealed and received in its healing and saving office.

The prayer that is Christian Science treatment begins with God. It includes an acknowledgment and understanding of divine law, ever operative in man's behalf; of Principle's government of all creation; of Mind's control of every action and function; of the spiritual basis and continuity of man's life, manifesting divine Life, Spirit. Such prayer would also include a specific denial of whatever aggressive belief might appear to be tendering its false claims of chronic debility, disability, or pain to the individual.

Christian Science treatment awakens the individual to a clearer sense of who he is as the child of God, the reflection of Soul, the outcome of divine Love. He begins to realize man's innate completeness and permanent unity with the Father-Mother. Individual being is seen to be intact and undefiled; free, whole, forever unlimited. Thus, the lie of chronic disease loses its supposed support (fear, ignorance, sin).See Science and Health 411:20-21. Its apparent substance as false belief in human thought dissolves. It falls under the lie's own dead weight of nothingness. Healing results.
