I am so grateful for Christian Science

I am so grateful for Christian Science. Through this religion I have learned that "desire is prayer" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 1). As a child I prayed for a religion I could understand; and then a few years later, when I moved to another city, I lived with a family of eight. One in this family was a Christian Scientist. Through her I became interested in the religion and had two years in Sunday School. The seed was sown; my prayer was answered.

Sometime ago I experienced the healing of a growth which had been on my head for nine years. I was at the beauty shop one day, and while under the dryer I had a sharp pain in my head. When I arrived home, I asked my sister to look at the growth, and she said it was draining. I tried to apply the truths of Christian Science and was not fearful; but every time I went to the beauty shop the operator would ask me when I was going to see a doctor. Then the condition grew worse. My neck swelled, and I had a fever.
