Verification of healings

The healings we publish are verified by people who can vouch for the testifier or who know of the healing. Examples of Christian healing from individuals and families around the world have been published in the Christian Science periodicals for well over a century.

Freedom from knee pain

From the October 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Several years ago, I injured both of my knees. I could not walk more than a short distance without pausing. The pain was sharp and piercing, and it hindered me from doing what I love: running. 

I attributed the injury to the improper and excessive training I had done throughout the year in preparation for the upcoming track season, and I was deeply angered by it. My coaches informed me that I should see a doctor, who would most likely say that I would need surgery. They had seen this happen to many other students, and informed me that, even with surgery, my ability to run would be limited. 

Having been raised in a Christian Science home, I chose to work this challenge out through prayer because I had had many other healings prior to this and knew of the efficacy of Christian Science. I focused on the idea that man is the reflection of God and that nothing can hinder, handicap, or disprove this law.
