OUR GOAL: INSTANTANEOUS HEALING

God alone heals. Through her clear spiritual vision Mary Baker Eddy perceived the great truth that God, Mind, is the only cause, omnipotent and omnipresent; therefore He alone has the power and ability to heal. This, however, was not a new truth, for Jeremiah glimpsed the power of God when he prayed (Jer. 17:14), "Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed." The Psalmist exclaimed (Ps. 107:20), "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." Luke, recounting an incident in Christ Jesus' healing ministry, said (Luke 5:17), "And the power of the Lord was present to heal them."

Christian Science treatment, or understanding prayer, is based upon the fact that God is All; that He lovingly cares for His children; that He absolutely and harmoniously governs the one and only universe, which, because it is of His creating, is perfect, spiritual, and eternal; and that man, the image of God, Spirit, is His reflection and thus is always effect, never cause. The belief that one has within himself, apart from God, an ability to effect cures weakens his ability to demonstrate Truth. The healing is done by God, not by men.
