Completely healed after being hit by a van

From the June 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I was working at a newspaper selling ad space, and I was walking around town looking for business.  

It was raining. I was walking across the street in a crosswalk, and all of a sudden a van came driving very fast around the corner and must not have seen me. My first thought was, “This is going to be the end.” I was afraid I would die. But the next thought was, “No! God is governing me and protecting me! God is right here right now! I am safe.” The driver hit me and knocked me over.

A woman came out from a business after she heard a loud noise and asked me if I needed an ambulance. I replied no. I preferred to turn to what had helped me so often: Christian Science. I had experienced healing through prayer before and had confidence in its effectiveness. I immediately called a Christian Science practitioner on my cellphone, and she started giving me spiritual ideas to hold on to, and started praying.
