RADIO PROGRAM No. 39 - Your Real Inheritance

On this program Mrs. Helen Drury of Nassau, Bahama Islands, told of her own experience, as follows:

While living in England during World War II, I became weak and exhausted, due to an organic disorder and severe heart trouble. I couldn't walk up a flight of stairs or even get into bed without great difficulty. I was trying to continue at a full-time job in an essential industry, and under national regulations I had an examination by a doctor. He diagnosed the difficulty as heart trouble and acute anemia brought about by hemorrhage. I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me, and I myself studied constantly the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

Several times the trouble disappeared, but then it returned. Also, I began to feel very fearful because there was the outward manifestation of a growth. As the practitioner continued to pray, I think she discerned that there was something in my thinking which was preventing the healing. One day she said, "Are you harboring a thought of heredity?" I had not thought about this. But my mother and her mother had died of cancer, and I realized that I had this fear in my thought.
