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.

Hearing restored

From the May 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As a young man, I was introduced to Christian Science shortly after enlisting in the United States Coast Guard. I was raised in a religion that required an intermediary or “middle man” for prayer. But Christian Science taught me a new way to pray—that I had a direct relationship with God, who is divine Love or Mind. I could listen to my heavenly Father at any time. No one could come in between me and Him. I learned that my pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, was always available to me.

A few years later, I was accepted to the Officers’ Candidate School. I was excited, honored, and, perhaps a bit self-important. During my physical exam before reporting for training, the doctors found an irregularity in one of my ears. I not only was removed from the advancement roll, but was also discharged from the service I loved. 

I began to prayerfully work with a Christian Science practitioner with the passage “The ‘divine ear’ is not an auditory nerve. It is the all-hearing and all-knowing Mind, to whom each need of man is always known and by whom it will be supplied” (Science and Health, p. 7). This was a comforting message and I expected good, healing results.
