Testimonies of Healing

A victory over anxiety

Adapted from an article that appeared on on September 28, 2023

From the May 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One afternoon in the middle of our son’s fourth-grade year in elementary school, I got a call from the nurse’s office to pick him up. He was feeling nauseous and his head hurt. I brought him home and stayed with him, praying for him. After we had read together that week’s Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly, he slept a bit and then woke completely free of the symptoms.

When the same thing happened at school again, I contacted a Christian Science practitioner and asked her to pray for my son. The symptoms he was experiencing quickly dissipated after the treatment, but later returned. When his trips to the nurse’s office became a regular occurrence, my husband and I asked our son some questions about what was going on in school. But he said that everything was fine. Our son was a good student who loved learning and being with his friends.

I went to the school to talk with the nurse about how my husband and I were helping our son, explaining that we were addressing this challenge through prayer. She knew that my husband and I were Christian Scientists, and she was very supportive.
