While a teen-ager, I suffered from stammering

While a teen-ager, I suffered from stammering. Because of my inability to communicate I lacked self-confidence when I was with other people, and I found this especially frustrating because by nature I was a good organizer. During this time I attended a Christian Science Sunday School, but although I thought about it occasionally, I did not seem to apply my understanding of Science to overcome this problem.

The breakthrough in this healing came soon after I started work in a large office. I was doubting my choice of career, and my stammering became worse. I turned to God in prayer more humbly than ever before. Suddenly one night the words "Thy will be done" from the Lord's Prayer stood out to me. It was a distinct answer to meet my need, for I saw two things. First, I had been preoccupied with my own will and had not really listened for guidance from God. Second, I understood better the nature of God's will. This will includes the intelligence of divine Mind, the gentleness of divine Love, and is available for us to utilize right now in our daily lives. As Mrs. Eddy says in her spiritual interpretation of this part of the Lord's Prayer (Science and Health, p. 17):
