Testimonies of Healing

Healing of inflamed scalp

From the July 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Several years ago, an acutely itchy and burning condition appeared all over my scalp. I’d had many healings since I found Christian Science in 1995, so I was eager to rely completely on prayer to heal this condition as well. I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me, and I was very grateful for this support.

As I turned to God in prayer, some passages came to me from my daily study of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. One Bible passage was from Psalm 103: “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies” (verses 1–4).

The line “all that is within me, bless his holy name” really spoke to me. I understood that I needed to fill my thoughts with the harmony and goodness of infinite divine Love, God.
