I wish to express gratitude for...

I wish to express gratitude for the many blessings Christian Science has brought into my life. With the help of practitioners it has met our every need, both physical and financial, over a period of many years. Sick headaches, colds, laryngitis, broken collar bone, need of wearing glasses, and many other discordant conditions have been healed.

I should like to share a beautiful experience in which "the word of the Lord" was as pronounced in a business problem as in the Biblical story of Samuel.

Soon after joining a local branch church, I found myself confronted with a seeming loss of valuable and necessary equipment in which we had a large investment, in a business that had been unquestionably sustained by Love through hurricanes, bank failures, and depression. A specified sum of money was required by the equipment company, and a limited period of time was given us in which to raise it, in seemingly the most trying season of the year in Florida. Much prayer and study had gone into the remaining few days of grace—days filled with earnest and persistent activity, but on the evening of the last day, there still remained no de velopment; every avenue seemed closed. The following day we were facing either payment in full of the obligation or the signing of an unconditional release of the equipment to the company. I retired soon after midnight, conscious of my helplessness, but declaring fervently that "man's extremity is God's opportunity." At two o'clock in the morning I awoke feeling as if a voice had called me. I arose quietly, to avoid disturbing other members of the family, and, slipping out to the breakfast room, I again took up the study of our Lesson-Sermon for the week in the Christian Science Quarterly. I thought I was quite familiar with all it contained, but suddenly the following verses from Isaiah stood out like a revelation: "Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken. ... And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity."
