[Original testimony in German]

They cried unto the Lord in...

"They cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. . . . Oh that men would praise the Lord" (Ps. 107:13, 15). The importance of this praise is stated in these words on page 372 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "In Christian Science, a denial of Truth is fatal, while a just acknowledgment of Truth and of what it has done for us is an effectual help." For this reason I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for the peace of mind and the healings which have come to me and my family through Christian Science.

For years I was tormented by inward unrest and fear. I was bothered by pain and weakness in my legs. This condition was considered hereditary, and I suffered from mental depression. Although to outward appearance I had everything I needed and should have been satisfied with my circumstances, a restless seeking for inward peace never left me. In my distress a dear relative told me about Christian Science, and I asked for treatment. Ups and downs followed, but despite relapses I clung steadfastly to the truth. Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health, p. 10): "Seeking is not sufficient. It is striving that enables us to enter."

I continued to study earnestly, and suddenly I saw the truth much more clearly. I realized that God, good, is the only power and that He is ever present. The heaviness which had clung to me for years fell away. I was happy and free, filled with a deep sense of peace and blessed with unswerving faith in God. While the weakness and pain in my legs persisted for some time and I walked with a limp, I clung steadfastly to truth. I was completely healed without material aid.
