A year ago, after having a crown placed on a tooth, I was surprised and dismayed to find that the tooth was very painful. I had prayed a lot before the crown was put in, and was grateful to have overcome the fear I’d felt about the dental work.
When I get up in the middle of the night, I often try to affirm some metaphysical truth concerning God and His creation, whether this involves praying for a certain close-to-home situation or for the world.

When our two children were under the age of three, our family moved to a large city to pursue a job offer that was promised to my husband. After two months, it was evident that this job was not what had been promised.
One Saturday morning I woke up with a headache, which lingered for the entire day. I tried to dismiss it by saying to myself, “It’s just a headache; it will go away.

Recently I purchased a truck that ended up breaking down on my way home. The individual who had sold the truck is a collector of cars and has a history of selling good, working trucks, so I was sure he had checked out this truck before selling it to my wife and me.
It is time that I express my gratitude and share some of the blessings I have received through my study and practice of Christian Science. I started studying Science several decades ago and have found that it has met all of my needs over the years.
For many years I relied on nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) whenever I had dental work done. This drug doesn’t relieve pain but is supposed to alleviate anxiety, which I experienced whenever going to the dentist.
