Healing of plantar warts

From the October 2020 issue of The Christian Science Journal

About 15 years ago, a small plantar wart appeared on the heel of my left foot. The wart continued to grow, and new warts began to appear on my heel over the next few years. 

Though they were mostly an annoyance, they were gradually becoming more concerning to me. Any time I accidentally knocked that part of my foot, the intense pain was an increasingly upsetting reminder of the warts. I don’t remember if I prayed specifically about the condition at first, though I do remember trying a homemade method of wart removal, which did not work.

One day I’d had enough! I contacted a Christian Science practitioner and asked her for Christian Science treatment. She shared a number of helpful ideas and cited the following Bible verses: “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:4, 5).
