Standing in front of a petrol...

Standing in front of a petrol station near Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia, and chatting with the garage proprietor while my car was being filled with petrol, I experienced a sharp pain in one of my fingers. When I looked to see what had happened I noticed a mosquito leaving my finger, which was bleeding. By night my finger was swollen. I did a little work in Christian Science and retired early. At midnight I woke up suffering from fever, and the swelling had extended to my hand. I was restless and could not stay in bed. I started working now earnestly, applying all I knew of the truth to overcome the belief of poison, but instead of getting better I grew worse. I became alarmed, thinking my treatment unsuccessful and doubting my ability to help myself.

I started to pray to God to give me guidance, new ideas, and a better understanding of how to use them, and to enable me to come out of this trouble as I had been helped many times before. Of myself, I realized, I could not do anything more.
