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.

Child’s willful disposition healed

One of our children had a deeply inspiring healing of measles. This same child had struggled daily, from birth, with a very unhappy, willful, ornery disposition.

Gratitude brings healing of a scorpion’s stings

Several summers ago, very early in the morning, I was stung three times by a scorpion that had gotten into my bed.   From as early as I can remember, I have seen and experienced Christian Science healing in my own life and later in my work as a Christian Science nurse, so I naturally turned to the healing method I knew to be effective.

Quick recovery after a fall

Sometimes I traverse the beautiful woods and tranquil trails surrounding Concord, New Hampshire, either on foot or, in winter, on cross-country skis. Often during these times I find inspiration and healing answers to problems I’m praying about.

Prayer reverses predictions of difficult birth

Some months ago I received a call from my daughter, who was close to the date of delivering her baby. She said she had an appointment at a nearby hospital to have an operation.

Stolen purse recovered

Many years ago, on a beautiful Sunday morning in the summer, my then two-year-old daughter and I were getting ready to go to church. It was our custom to declare two truths as we dressed—that God, good, is ever present, and that the only thing going on is good.

Illness before trip healed

Some years ago, I planned to go on a trip to a distant part of the country. This trip was a walking tour and involved being on my feet each day for most of a two-week period.

Sudden pain and restricted movement healed

I’m truly grateful for the privilege of studying Christian Science and for the many blessings it has brought to my life. Recently, while helping someone with landscape work, I felt a bite or prick on one of my fingers, and I drew back in pain.

Healing of foot injury

I was moving quickly to get my daughter to school a few months ago, and I smacked my bare foot on an open door. As I hopped around in extreme pain, I knew that this was a time for radical prayer! I reasoned that I could decide to go along with the thought that I was suffering from an accident or with what I knew to be true—that God’s law of harmony actually governs me (and everyone) every second of the day.

Healing during a church service

A number of years ago I had a wonderful healing during a Christian Science church service. I was experiencing symptoms of an abscessed tooth, and though I had been to a dentist regularly in the past, I decided that I wanted to handle this situation through Christian Science.

Healed of drooping eyelid

I would like to express my gratitude for a physical healing I experienced of a drooping eyelid. At the time I was working as an engineer for a company that required quite a bit of computer work, so the lack of muscle strength in one eye was very troublesome and seemed to interfere with my daily workload.
