Testimonies of healing

Intestinal pain healed

From the November 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Early in November of 2016 I began to experience intestinal pain. I immediately prayed for myself, knowing that this apparent condition was a lie about my spiritual selfhood, which is ever, always perfect. But the cramps and pain continued and were severe at times, and I had a loss of appetite and energy. I was able to do most of what I needed to do each day, which included praying for patients in my work as a Christian Science practitioner, and I was witnessing their healings.

After a few days of praying for myself, I contacted a Christian Science practitioner for metaphysical treatment. I am grateful for his steadfast prayer, which brought new spiritual insights each day and helped keep my thought uplifted. 

Some days I saw improvement, but nights were especially difficult. I rarely slept more than an hour at a time because the pain and discomfort would get me up. So, I would use these wakeful times for prayer and communion with God.
