Some years ago I woke up during the night with a severe pain in my shoulder. I awakened my husband and began declaring scientific truths, knowing that the pain could not be real, as God is not the author of pain. By six o'clock the situation had not improved, so I had my husband call a Christian Science practitioner, who agreed to pray for me. In just a few minutes the pain began to subside.

That day I spent my waking hours reading and studying to realize my true identity as a perfect spiritual idea of God. The healing took about a week, but I was then completely free of the condition, and it has not recurred.

Another healing took place about a year ago. When I awoke in the morning, I had symptoms of a severe type of flu that was considered prevalent. My first inclination was to have my husband call a practitioner for me. However, it occurred to me that I was relying too much on someone else to do the work for me, so I decided it was time for me to work this out for myself.
