When you call on a Christian Science practitioner for the first time

Perhaps you are learning of Christian Science and feel you would like to call on a Christian Science practitioner for the healing of a personal trouble or illness—but feel hesitant. You don't really understand the process and so you don't know what to say to the practitioner.

A practitioner is an experienced Christian Scientist who, following the example of Christ Jesus, is devoting his or her life full time to helping others through prayer. You should find the practitioner to be humble, spiritually-minded, unselfish, and compassionate. However, you're also going to find practitioners to be ordinary people who eat three times a day, who laugh and cry, and who know from personal experience what it feels like to be afraid or to be in pain.
