Testimonies of Healing

Injury and accompanying concerns healed

From the October 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I wish to express gratitude for the lifetime of insight, peace, and healing I have gained from my study and practice of Christian Science. As a fifth-generation Christian Scientist, I appreciate the guidance I received from family members during my younger days, as well as all I’ve learned through my own study and practice of Christian Science. It is with pleasure and love that I am now sharing Christian Science with my children.

One experience in particular is an example of what Christian Science means to me. A few years ago, I heard a news story that involved dramatic complications associated with a person’s injury, and a subsequent infection. The story seemed to be on every TV and radio. I managed to put the story out of my thought, but neglected to pray to firmly reject the suggestion that there could be a power apart from God—in this case, the seeming power of accidents.

A short time later, I cut my arm. The injury was such that I felt it best to seek the help of a Christian Science nurse, who cleaned and bandaged the wounds and changed the bandage for me regularly over the next several days. I will always be grateful for the loving and knowledgeable care I received from several Christian Science nurses and for the steadfast and reassuring prayers of the Christian Science practitioner I contacted for metaphysical treatment.
