Assurance of God's presence cures pain

From the May 2002 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A number of times during the past few years, I would start feeling a pain in my side. Sometimes it was minor, and I'd think about what I'd learned about Christian Science healing until the pain left. When it became a major problem, I'd call a practitioner of Christian Science to pray with me, and I'd understand better how much God loves us, never sending pain. I always got relief and was grateful.

I'm now more confident that those "works in progress" will be resolved as well.

About two years ago on a Saturday morning, the pain started slowly, and within an hour or so it became obvious I needed to call the practitioner for more prayer. I did. But the pain escalated, and within another hour I had to call for more help, as I couldn't stand or sit without a lot of discomfort. Finally, I began to wonder if I should go to a hospital emergency room to get whatever it was taken care of.
