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.
