I am very grateful that many years ago, when solving a professional difficulty, my attention was called to Christian Science. In working out the difficulty I had to completely change my thinking about God, myself, and the meaning of prayer. The solution began when I learned to recognize God as the source of good, as Life, Truth, and Love. It was important for the demonstration to acknowledge God as omnipotent and that I, as the expression of His being, am at all times supplied with everything necessary.

For years I had been searching for guidance on how to pray aright. I was now privileged to find that a correct understanding of God is in itself prayer, and that human problems can be solved when we are ready to lift our thought to God. Thus I learned how to solve a housing problem, and I applied Christian Science to financial difficulties through prayer to express more of the nature of God as infinite Love in human affairs. Through the understanding that God is our Life, my wife and I were wonderfully protected during an automobile accident.

I am especially grateful for the healing of infection of the middle ear. I had had ear infections to cope with almost every year since childhood. After I had known Christian Science for a short time, I once more suffered infection of the middle ear with loss of hearing. At that time I was not so far along in my understanding that I could turn at once to God for healing in this case, but rather went to an ear specialist when the pain became intense. After several treatments, which brought me no relief, the doctor told me he would have to perform an operation. I was to wait another three days until there was a bed free in the hospital.
