Heat prostration yields to prayer

Some twenty-five years ago, when I first picked up a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and looked at the title, the word "health" stood out to me, and I thought it must be a book dealing with physical exercises, diet, and so on. My surprise was considerable when I discovered that the book was all about God and His children, among whom I was apparently included. My joy was great when I found out through actual experience that a measure of spiritual understanding and right thinking, together with wholehearted reliance on God instead of on medicines and material means, resulted in healthy physical conditions. In all the years since, Christian Science has been my only physician.

My first healing in Science was of chronic rheumatism, supposedly acquired in the British Army in the First World War. This painful and crippling condition, from which I suffered increasingly in damp weather, yielded wholly and permanently to Christian Science treatment.
