I would like to share with you a healing I had in 2011. I went to Paris to visit my family with a friend who is not a Christian Scientist. The day after our arrival I fell as I was crossing a street. I got up with much difficulty. I was in great pain and could not walk anymore. I was transported to the emergency room in a nearby hospital to get an X-ray. The diagnosis was a fractured pelvis.
For many years now, I have been finding solutions to all my challenges through prayer. I chose not to stay in the hospital and went back to my niece’s place. From there, I called a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. He immediately told me that there are no accidents in divine reality, and that I was not material, but spiritual, God’s beloved child.
The hospital had given me some painkillers to take home. I had been told that without painkillers I would not be able to hold up. But I decided not to take them because I believed with all my heart that prayer would be my best remedy and that our dear Father, God, would not abandon me. I filled my thought with the truth of God’s ever-presence. My family wanted me to stay in Paris, but I felt that I needed to go home, to a calmer place without so many worried thoughts around me. Moreover, when I fell, I’d hurt one side of my face, and it had turned black, and I could not open one of my eyes. That was drawing a lot of attention from everyone.
