One precious healing in our family through prayer to God in Christian Science took place when one of our sons was around six years old. He developed a painful condition behind his right ear. We were visiting relatives in another city when the problem seemed to flare up in the middle of the night. A high fever was one symptom, and I realized my own mounting fear had to be overcome. We called a Christian Science practitioner in that city, and in a calm voice, expressing much tenderness, she reassured me of God's love for all His children, of His ever-presence and omnipotence. Soon I was able to rise above the fear and gain a sense of dominion regarding the situation.

In the morning I thanked the practitioner for her help, and we returned to our home city. Because the condition had not been completely healed, we requested further help from a practitioner in our area. She helped me see the whole manifestation as a mortal lie, that my son was a spiritual idea and not physique subject to material laws.
