Early last year, I began experiencing a sharp pain in my chest, particularly on my left side. At first, I thought little of it—I had been following a new workout regimen and figured that with a little rest, the problem would subside.
Despite resting for a few days, though, I found that the pain only increased and spread. It was difficult to breathe and my heartbeat felt irregular.
Thinking about what I had learned while taking Primary class instruction in Christian Science just a few months prior, I felt confident that this could be healed. I knew that the first thing I needed to do was address the fear in my thought. I also decided to ask a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me.
