When I was born, my mother was told that, since the birth was premature, I would not live. She was acquainted with Christian Science and clung firmly to God. She asked for help from a Christian Science practitioner, who immediately began to pray for me. The practitioner told her that God made His creation complete. She spoke of the seven days of creation in the first chapter of Genesis as days of spiritual understanding. I grew up completely healthy and happy, attending the Christian Science Sunday School, where I learned to demonstrate for myself the simple spiritual truths that are taught there.

Years later, when I was a young woman, I was struck by a bullet as I went out the door of my house. A passerby put me into his car and I was admitted to a hospital. There it was thought very unlikely that I would survive the crisis. The diagnosis was that the bullet had done considerable internal damage. The doctors stated that I had lost much blood and they expected the end had come for me. There was no medical treatment they could give me for the internal injuries. Again, my only help was Christian Science.

The selfless work of a practitioner, who prayed for me throughout the night, resulted in my being perfectly well and home in five days.
