About ten years ago I became aware of a spot on my face. It was not too evident, and now and then I prayed about the problem. Yet the blemish continued to develop until it became very unsightly and troublesome. At least three different Christian Science practitioners prayed for me at various times over the years, and I am grateful for the help of each one. Still, the condition seemed not to improve. It remained with me and demanded regular attention, as I had to change the bandage every day. I knew in my heart that I must come to grips with the situation through my understanding of Science.

Many times I began a course of prayer and study of the Bible and the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, that seemed void of results. I am glad to say, however, that at no time did I feel Christian Science had failed or was failing me. Also, I am grateful that the problem did not prevent me from serving my branch church in several capacities.
