Taking the medicine of Mind

From the September 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal


If in times of illness we're used to relying on medical or herbal prescriptions or on various traditional or nontraditional therapies, we may think of prayer as, at best, an adjunct to these approaches. The thought of someone relying exclusively on prayer to address illness may seem in itself like a bad case of "the do-nothings" that requires a cure! Yet prayer rooted in an understanding of God has, independent of other aids , been consistently proved effective in healing disease.
