I shall always be grateful for my first healing brought about through the study and application of Christian Science. It taught me the vast difference between a prayer of pleading for God to do something and the prayer of acceptance of good already here and available, as revealed in Christian Science.

Suffering daily from pain, which a doctor diagnosed as arthritis, I turned to God in prayer for relief from the affliction which had come to me. Unable to go to work, I spent most of one day in fervent prayer. My prayer was a petition to God, asking Him to recognize my predicament and heal me of it, and it served only to center my thought on the physical condition. Instead of being healed, I became worse as the day went on, until I was suffering almost beyond that which I could bear. There followed a sense of disappointment that, although I had done all I knew how to do, God had not answered my prayer and my suffering was worse.
