The role of “prayer and fasting” in healing

From the January 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christ Jesus gave his disciples—and his followers today—clear instructions on how to heal as he did. For example, when his disciples asked why they had failed to heal a boy of a severe illness, whom Jesus subsequently healed, he answered: “This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting” ( Mark 9:29 ).
