THE DESIRE TO HEAL
The new student of Christian Science, having seen its grand results, is sometimes heard to say, "I should so like to heal others, but I don't know how to proceed toward that high goal; and besides I doubt that I should ever be good enough." But right desire is prayer, and the prayer of understanding is answered.
There is no set rule or outlined method in learning to apply the healing truths of this Science. What is required is individual growth in understanding and simple demonstrations over false beliefs. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, gives this practical assurance (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 326): "Working and praying with true motives, your Father will open the way."
A young girl saw a member of her family who had suffered from a painful disease for many years healed through one treatment given by a Christian Science practitioner. She was so deeply impressed by this wonderful event that she resolved to study and learn how to use this spiritual method of Mind-healing. She began to study the Lesson-Sermons, outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, and to read the Bible with the new light which this study shed upon its pages.
