Two years ago, through prayer in Christian Science, I had a very quick healing. One day, as I was preparing lunch, I felt myself becoming very weak, then suddenly I began to lose the use of one side of my body. I tried to reach the telephone to ring a Christian Science practitioner for help but fell to the floor and was unable to get up. I became very fearful but kept denying the error of incapacity and illness. I prayed, repeating "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This statement denies substance and intelligence in matter. The opening words are (p. 468): "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all."

After a while I managed to crawl to the telephone and tell the practitioner what had happened. She began to pray for me at once. I managed to lift myself up onto a chair near the telephone, declaring the truth as best I could and trying to overcome the fear.
