Some years ago, a condition that looked like a burn appeared on the top of one of my hands. I put a bandage on the area to keep it clean and to spare others from concern about it.
I requested daily metaphysical treatment from a Christian Science practitioner. Although I don’t remember exactly how we prayed, I’m sure she talked to me about God’s love for me.
At that time, I was new to Christian Science and was a very unhappy single mother. Christian Science teaches that a physical problem is often the outcome of fear. In this case, I feared that I would not be able to handle all I needed to do to care for myself and my family.
