From the March 2005 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Sometimes there's nothing more discouraging than hearing that someone else has had a quick healing, especially if you've been longing to have more of them yourself. It's so natural to desire health and well-being; it's also natural to expect the kind of quick and permanent healing that assures you of your wholeness and wellness—right here and now. This expectation is based on the fact that God loves and tenderly ministers to all of His creation, you included. And that a recognition of this ongoing, unchanging connection brings profound results: the transformation of thought and body.

There's no formula for quick healing, but these five ideas can help.

As a Christian Science practitioner, I strive daily for more effective healing in my practice. And I still need regeneration and transformation in my own life. But there are a few ideas that have brought quicker healings for me and for patients. Perhaps these ideas will help break loose a mental logjam, letting inspiration flow and healing come more quickly. Or perhaps they'll help simplify the process of prayer. Whether one is praying for oneself or another, these ideas can help improve the effectiveness of Christian Science healing treatment.
