Earlier this year, for a period of several weeks I found myself waking up in the middle of the night filled with fear—worries about my future and fears about various problems. I would be unable to calm my thought or pray. And despite feeling very tired, I would be unable to fall asleep again for several hours.
These restless nights made it difficult to be alert and energized during the day. I knew I needed to find a way to replace worried thoughts with calm ones and get back to resting peacefully—and prayer was the obvious way forward.
In the Preface of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mrs. Eddy writes of healing: “The Physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus’ time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation. Now, as then, these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural. They are the sign of Immanuel, or ‘God with us,’ – a divine influence ever present in human consciousness and repeating itself, coming now as was promised aforetime…” (xi:9-18). The following posts are written accounts of just four of the many healings by members of this church. To hear more about Christian Science healing, you are welcome to attend our Wednesday night testimony meetings at 8:00 pm.
