With profound gratitude I wish to submit the following testimony of healing.

One afternoon I cut my hand while working on some sheet metal. The wound did not heal but did not seem to warrant any specific attention. A few days later I wakened in the morning at six o'clock with a very sore arm and was unable to move my fingers due to severe pain. My hand was swollen and an unnatural color. The trouble extended up the arm. For the moment fear seemed quite overwhelming.

Immediately I called a Christian Science practitioner for help. Although it was obviously the practitioner's first call of the day, a quick and emphatic declaration was given me. I was assured that matter cannot be puffed up, and that we stop error in its tracks. It was recommended that I identify myself as an idea of God, pondering the seven synonyms for God, and the practitioner would take care of the rest. At this point the practitioner hung up. It struck me that if the practitioner could be that resolute I should at least try to be the same in meeting my obligation.
