I've grown up as a Christian Scientist, and there have been a variety of healings in my life. One leaps to mind as marking a turning point, because in this instance, and for the first time, I was healed through my own prayer—I relied only on God to help me.
One afternoon when my family was preparing for dinner guests, I began to feel sharp stomach pains. My first reaction was, "I'm scared to death." My next thought was, "Go get Mom." However, I turned away from both of these suggestions and decided instead to act to help myself. I wanted to prove that I needed no human support, but could apply my own understanding of God and be healed.
I began reading the chapter entitled "Christian Science Practice" in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The pain was so great that I could neither sit nor lie down. My only alternative was to pace the room as I read.
