Prayer dissolves intense pain

From the April 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I am deeply grateful to God for a physical healing that came very quickly and decisively through prayer in Christian Science.

On a Sunday morning last year, I awoke with pain and stiffness in my neck. Since I wanted to be in church, I showered and got dressed. However, when it came time to leave, I couldn’t turn my head without sharp pain, so I asked my wife to drive.

As we sat together in church, I drank in the healing truths in the Christian Science Lesson-Sermon, and I especially appreciated the music that morning. Yet by the time church was over things had grown worse. When we arrived home, I found I couldn’t eat lunch normally or sit upright. A very insistent thought came that I had a pinched nerve in my neck.
