I Asked for Christian Science Treatment...

...and then what? As the patient, what was my part? (Prayerful healing work was being undertaken at my request on my behalf by a practitioner listed in The Christian Science Journal.) A flood of answers came swiftly to my thought.

• I could be obedient to whatever I was asked to study and ponder. In this case I was invited to study the definition in Science and Health of the word "wilderness" and to try to see this trial as, in Mrs. Eddy's words, "the vestibule in which a material sense of things disappears, and spiritual sense unfolds the great facts of existence." Science and Health, p. 597; I also studied a verse from that week's Lesson-Sermon, found in the Christian Science Quarterly, stating God's promise to His children to provide guidance and supply in even the most unpromising situations: "I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." Isa. 43: 19. Deliverance from all seeming evil is assured, I reasoned, and rejoiced in this thought.
