I will praise thee, O Lord,...

"I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations" (Ps. 57: 9). About fifteen years ago one of my fingers became badly infected, a condition which created severe pain and an inability to use the hand and arm.

I was employed in the home of a Christian Scientist, who asked if I should like to have prayerful help in Christian Science. Fearing surgery would be necessary if I were attended by a medical doctor, I visited a practitioner of this religion, who talked with me of God and man.

He patiently explained the true concept of the Bible statement (Gen. 1:27), "God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him." I then began to realize that in reality I was created in the likeness of Spirit and that I was wholly spiritual and Godlike. Therefore I did not and could not possess anything ungodly, such as pain and disease.
