Fractured pelvis healed

From the March 2013 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Originally written in French, this testimony is also published in the March 2013 German, French, Portuguese, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

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.
