Q:  I know in Christian Science it’s God that does the healing, but sometimes that truth gets lost in the fear that someone is in pain and needs help—and as a Christian Science practitioner I’m supposed to have the “magic bullet,” the specific understanding of truth, that will help them. How can I pray about this?  A:  As a practitioner, if a case seems fraught with fear, I sometimes turn to this passage from Isaiah: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” ( 41:10 ).
