Testimonies of Healing

It has been such a joy to witness God's healing...

From the March 1990 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It has been such a joy to witness God's healing power through the practice of Christian Science. Four generations of our family have experienced this healing power through scientific prayer and trust in God's love and ever-governing law.

One of the most convincing proofs of God's care occurred while I was working on a road construction crew in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I was told to drive a tractor-like air-compressor vehicle down an unfinished stretch of single-lane gravel roadway. Just as the tractor accelerated more rapidly than I had expected, a huge dump truck appeared only a few yards ahead, coming straight toward me. It completely filled the narrow road. In a split second I turned the tractor out of the way. It skidded on the loose road shoulder, and the brakes failed. The tractor and I plunged over the edge, tumbling over granite boulders, scrub pine, and brush.

As the tractor began its tumble, I was thrown head over heels away from the vehicle. I remember only one prayer: "God is my Life!" The men who witnessed the accident said they could hear that prayer echo throughout the canyon. Although I bounced and careened down the ravine, I finally landed in an upright sitting position against a pine tree.
