Painful throat condition healed

From the July 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One day last year, I noticed my throat becoming sore. I turned to prayer, but the soreness seemed to increase over the course of the day. That evening, I contacted a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful support. She responded quickly and said she would pray with me. 

That night I slept very little. Aside from praying about the pain, I found myself gripped with a deep fear that Christian Science couldn’t help me and that what I was dealing with was “serious.” The thought came to me that I would need to visit a doctor the next day. 

With a consecrated focus, I prayed to know that there was nothing outside of God’s control, nor could I be tainted, sick, or even pained. This quiet time with God helped bring a sense of peace, and eventually I fell asleep. The next morning I felt more peaceful because the fear had subsided. However, the pain and some other symptoms were still present.
