Testimonies of Healing

An end to periods of immobility and pain

From the November 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I offer this testimony as encouragement to anyone praying about a long-standing difficulty.

Some years ago, I struggled with immobility and intense pain for periods ranging from several weeks to a couple of months. The first time it occurred, I could not find a comfortable position or walk, sleep, or swim (one of my favorite activities) with any ease, and the pain was severe.

A Christian Science practitioner was praying for me, and I spent many hours day and night praying and listening to tapes of the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson, Sentinel Radio, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and the Bible. I knew from experience that prayer in Christian Science is effective, and I was endeavoring to follow this cherished admonition in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany by Mary Baker Eddy: “Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them” (p. 210).
