After car crash, both drivers pray for healing

From the October 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At a busy intersection in the heart of downtown, the light had just changed to green, and it was time for me to proceed. As I drove into the intersection, though, a driver in a large pickup truck, who had not observed his red light, plowed into my car on the passenger side. I did not see the vehicle coming toward me, and at first I thought something had fallen out of the sky. 

But soon I became aware that my car was immovable and was in the middle of the intersection under the traffic light. The smell of gasoline was in the air, and the other driver was quite concerned for my safety. He called to me to get out of the car. 

When I reached the sidewalk, he informed me he had called 911. I said I was calling my husband and a friend who was a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. He then informed me he was a Christian. I responded that I was also Christian and belonged to the local Church of Christ, Scientist. He said he knew nothing about Christian Science and asked if I would be willing to share with him some of its teachings.
