Sometime ago I sustained injuries outside a public library and was taken inside suffering from a badly cut head and a severely injured arm. The library staff were very kind and allowed their telephone to be used for a call to a Christian Science practitioner.

When I reached home, the practitioner was informed of the almost unendurable pain that I was experiencing. She did specific prayerful work immediately, and in about an hour the pain had disappeared. Although for considerable time much discomfort was experienced, there was never any return of excessive pain. The head was completely healed by the end of the second week, but the healing of a broken arm and collarbone and of a dislocated shoulder took approximately six months.

At the time of the incident, those around me urged hospital treatment as quickly as possible, but I was so confident of the truth of Mrs. Eddy's words (Science and Health, p. 228), "There is no power apart from God," that I knew there was no need to resort to surgery either for stitches or for bone setting.
