News of Healing


The healings we publish are verified by people who can vouch for the testifier or who know of the healing. Examples of Christian healing from individuals and families around the world have been published in the Christian Science periodicals for well over a century.

The most recently-published testimonies are at the top.

Swollen foot healed

I had started reusing a pair of boots (previously relegated to the back of the closet) for walks with my canine companion. After the first walk, I recalled why the boots had been relegated: The right boot excessively pressured the top of my foot.

Burn healed

I had been preparing a meal using a stainless steel skillet, which had to go into the oven at 400 degrees for half an hour. When I reached into the oven to take it out, the potholder I was using didn’t quite cover the entire length of the handle, and the end of it touched the heel of my hand.

Saved from suicide

Many years ago, about ten years after I’d taken Christian Science class instruction, I desperately needed help. Another class-taught Christian Scientist, who lived just up the hill from me and was a close friend, came to my rescue.

Injured hand healed quickly

A few years ago I was employed as a caregiver for an elderly man. One day, after helping him to the car to give him a ride home, I had to return briefly to the house to retrieve something.

Walking with freedom

During the past few years I have had and have witnessed a number of healings in Christian Science, but one in particular stands out.   I woke up one morning, sat up on the edge of my bed, and realized I was unable to get out of bed or stand up.

True growth is only good

I’d like to express gratitude for a healing I had earlier this year of a growth under my eye. The growth was small at first but got larger and larger, to the point that our young son noticed it and said something about it several times.

Teeth straightened through prayer

When our son Rick was in the seventh grade, we were at the dentist’s office for his yearly cleaning, and the dentist told us Rick would require braces for a short time to straighten his crooked teeth. Rick was very upset by this verdict.

Knee trouble gone

In late June 2013, I began to have pain in my right knee whenever I moved after being still for a while. That made me limp a little, though I could still function more or less normally.

Ankle injury healed

A few years ago, I flew to Boston to attend the Annual Meeting of The Mother Church with my wife and son. While walking down a flight of marble stairs after the Sunday church service, I noticed someone I knew in the balcony above.

Healed of a chemical burn

It was a quiet Saturday morning at our townhouse apartment. My husband, a graduate student, was studying upstairs, and I was working in the kitchen.
