Problem during pregnancy resolved through prayer

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal


One of the first things I remember being taught as a young girl growing up in Christian Science was to know the truth of my being as a child of God, and to turn to this truth whenever there was a need for healing. 

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Man is harmonious when governed by Soul. Hence the importance of understanding the truth of being, which reveals the laws of spiritual existence” (p. 273). I am so grateful for this teaching and for the harmony and healing I have experienced throughout my life because of it. 

I had an opportunity to gain an even deeper understanding of spiritual being during my second pregnancy. As with my first pregnancy, I worked with a Christian Science practitioner on a weekly and often daily basis. My husband was always supportive and receptive to the spiritual truths shared during our conversations with the practitioner, though he is not a Christian Scientist. The delivery was to take place in a hospital with an attending physician.
