I should like to tell of the many benefits that have unfolded to me through Christian Science. I was brought up in a denominational church and taught to believe in a Supreme Being, but "Thy will be done" in the Lord's Prayer was always a stumblingblock to my progress. When conditions were harmonious I was quite ready to admit that it was God's will, but when unhappy and unjust I had a reluctance in giving God the credit, as it seemed lacking in reverence. Finally conditions seemed so unjust that I said, "What is God's will, anyway? He will certainly do as He pleases and my prayers are useless!" But Love was leading all the time, and my extremity proved to be God's opportunity.

Hearing that Christian Science healed sickness I was led to ask help of a practitioner, who lived seventy-five miles away, and through absent treatment I was healed of neuralgia, which had troubled me for years. I visited the practitioner later and told her of my confusion in regard to this prayer. I shall never forget the kindness with which she replied, "God's will is always good." For this great truth I am truly grateful, as well as for the fact that there has never been a return of neuralgia, the healing of which took place several years ago.

I am most grateful for a knowledge of this healing truth for my children and I am indeed happy to have them in the Christian Science Sunday school. They have had many healings, some of which were of colds, burns, pneumonia, and the results of accidents. Knowing that they are always in God's loving care has relieved me of worry and made our home harmonious and happy. I am grateful for help obtained in business matters, through the work of a loving practitioner, also for the knowledge that man is always in his right place, in Mind. I am grateful for the periodicals, for the spiritual food that is dispensed through their columns; for the kindness of relatives and friends who have helped me on my way; to Mrs. Eddy for her unselfed goodness in giving to a hungry world that wonderful book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures;" and thankful to God for His goodness. That I may help others as I have been helped is my earnest desire.
