I am deeply grateful for Christian Science

I am deeply grateful for Christian Science. It has been my means of happiness, health, and prosperity during all the years since I began to study it.

About nine years ago I was in the process of installing a gas floor furnace in my home when I came into contact with some high voltage electricity. I had cut a hole in the floor for the furnace and was sitting on the damp ground when I leaned against a pipe, which, by some means unknown to me, had become electrically charged. Everything stopped, and I could neither move nor speak.

My wife and daughter were in the room and realized that I was in trouble. They immediately started working prayerfully for me, acknowledging some of the truths of God and man taught in Christian Science. Then they pulled me away from the pipe and held me away until I could get my breath and let them know that I had come in contact with electricity. After some minutes I managed, with their help, to crawl up onto the floor, but I could not lift myself up because the muscles in my back were powerless.
