From the April 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Willingness to relinquish fixed impressions of time is a step toward healing chronic illness through prayer as practiced in Christian Science. (Interestingly, the word chronic comes from the Greek word kronos, meaning "time.")

Perhaps one of the first things to become more aware of when praying to heal chronic illness is simply this: We are not living in a time that makes Christian Science healing less likely, or even impossible.

Someone might argue, But isn't this a materialistic age, with a significant loss of the idealism that was characteristic of an earlier century? Hasn't the role of medicine expanded greatly, and hasn't it gained power and authority in human consciousness that it didn't have before?
