I shall never forget my first healing in Christian Science

I shall never forget my first healing in Christian Science. After suffering periodically for nearly ten years with what doctors pronounced complete exhaustion of the nervous system, I was about ready for an insane asylum. Then Christian Science was brought to me by a cousin who had experienced a healing. At the time I had Christian Science help I had never read a line in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Before leaving my bedside the practitioner told me that in a few days I would receive a letter from her. Naturally, I looked forward to that letter with great joy; but when I read it a great sense of disappointment or bewilderment swept over me, because I could see neither sense nor nonsense in it. The letter contained a quotation from Science and Health (p. 1) which read, "Desire is prayer; and no loss can occur from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded and exalted before they take form in words and in deeds." That sentence was indeed a stumblingblock to me at that time; for little did I know how to speak or understand the new tongue. Now I can rejoice in a measure with Isaiah that "the people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."

The above healing occurred in the latter part of the year 1906. Since that time I have had very many proofs of the healing power of Truth and Love, namely, the healing of colds, nauseated stomach, severe neuralgic pains in the head, malignant erysipelas, dislocated hip, ill-tempered disposition, and many minor ailments.
