Testimonies of Healing

Respiratory condition healed

From the May 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Several years ago my husband and I were traveling and I became ill with a severe respiratory condition. I prayed, simply affirming what I have learned in my study of Christian Science—that God, good, is all, and there is nothing besides Him. I knew sickness to be a belief that could be reversed through the spiritual understanding of God’s all-presence and all-power. 

As I prayed, I realized that I had been watching Congressional hearings on the confirmation of a high-level official, in which the testimonies of witnesses appeared offensive and destructive. To me the atmosphere of these hearings had seemed plagued with evil intents. 

That realization was my wake-up call. I immediately began reversing that material sense picture with three ideas that came to me while I prayed. The first was that God is my Life and the Life of all those involved in that governmental activity. The second was from Ezekiel in the Bible, where God says, “I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him” (21:27). And the third was from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “It requires courage to utter truth; for the higher Truth lifts her voice, the louder will error scream, until its inarticulate sound is forever silenced in oblivion” (p. 97).
