Testimonies of healing

Hearing restored, feelings of isolation healed

From the April 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Since childhood, I’d had trouble with hearing. My mom and dad prayed with me, and my hearing would improve for a while, but then the problem would recur. 

In grade school, my parents took me to an ear specialist who prescribed antibiotics, but there was no permanent solution. During college there was about a month when I could hardly hear out of either ear. I contacted a Christian Science practitioner for metaphysical treatment, and my hearing returned. But there seemed to be yearly recurrences of the problem. Each time I would pray, by myself or with the support of a practitioner, I could hear again.  

About five years ago, I noticed that my hearing was diminishing, and then three years ago, I couldn’t hear at all out of my right ear. It was scary to feel shut off from those around me. I felt isolated in group conversations because I couldn’t make out what others were saying.
