It is with joy and gratitude that I again testify to the healing power of God as taught in Christian Science. Through my persistent prayer a condition of athlete's foot, which had bothered me off and on for some time, gradually faded from my consciousness and experience. Colds and headaches have been quickly healed with brief, positive statements of truth. A severe attack of indigestion was almost instantaneously overcome. Difficulties in connection with my work as a radio officer have been surmounted when I have quietly declared the ever-presence of the one all-knowing Mind. With the prayerful help of a Christian Science friend business problems have been solved satisfactorily to everybody concerned.

The healing of a number of warts on my left hand stands out as a most helpful experience. When the first wart appeared it was not very noticeable, and I did little right thinking about it. Friends who were not students of Christian Science suggested burning it off, but I refused. Later more warts appeared, and I became alarmed lest they might continue to spread. It was then that I began earnestly to pray as we are taught in Christian Science.

One evening while studying in a Christian Science Reading Room I read two testimonies of the healing of warts. The following day when I visited the Reading Room again, a third such testimony was found, giving a detailed explanation of just how the healing had taken place. I read it several times until I had a clear realization of the spiritual ideas that had accomplished the healing; namely, that in reality there is nothing to heal or get rid of, because man is always harmonious and perfect, as God made him, and cannot be mesmerized into believing otherwise. This brought me a great sense of peace. Two days later I was almost surprised to find that the most conspicuous wart had vanished without leaving the slightest scar, and within two weeks all the warts were gone.
