Testimonies

Christian Scientists are grateful for the privilege of giving testimonies relative to the healing and protecting efficacy of prayer as taught in Christian Science. Testimonies given at the Wednesday evening meetings held in all Christian Science churches are given to glorify God, and with the intent to benefit the "simple seekers for Truth, weary wanderers, athirst in the desert" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 570), seekers who attend these meetings in happy anticipation of gaining more wisdom, understanding, and encouragement to continue on their journey to the "house not made with hands."

Truth demonstrated in experience is Immanuel, "God with us," a proof that the talent of spiritual healing has been exercised. By giving testimony of this experience, one proves his use of the talent, and thereby gains a greater appreciation of the benefits derived therefrom, and a greater sense of confidence and spontaneity when the next trial appears for solution. The giving of testimonies, therefore, not only serves to help those who are eager to hear them, but enables the giver to realize the value of the benefits gained. It opens greater channels for Truth and Love to enter thought, and obviates the possibility of the talent's being lost in desuetude.
