Simple prayer brings healing

From the August 2003 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I was helping my husband move a large dresser upstairs, when I felt an excruciating pain in my back. I put down the dresser and tried to stand up. But the pain was so intense that I literally could not breathe.

Normally in this type of situation, I would ask a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. In this particular instance, however, my mother and grandmother had come to our house for a visit and were waiting for lunch downstairs. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to spend an afternoon with them. So I decided to pray for myself.

I expected a new spiritual insight.
