Many people have found that prayer not only brings healing in the sense of comfort and peace in the midst of suffering, but it also brings cure. But what happens if we pray, and it doesn’t seem to be working?
A number of years ago, I was facing a very challenging relationship problem. One day, I suddenly fell to the floor in excruciating pain. It felt as if something in my vertebrae had gone out of place, and as if my upper body were no longer attached to my lower body! The situation was frightening and very painful.
My daughter, who was with me, called a Christian Science practitioner and held the phone to my ear. The words of the practitioner, assuring me of God’s love for me and of His constant care, were very reassuring. As soon as the fear left, my back returned to normal, the pain went away, and I was able to stand again.
