There are many blessings that I must give thanks for

There are many blessings that I must give thanks for. During the Second World War my husband, who was not a Christian Scientist, was given a medical opinion that because of a liver condition he had only three months to live. I was a Christian Scientist, and he agreed to have Science help. With the consecrated prayer of a Christian Science practitioner and the persistent recognition that God's purpose for man is solely good, my husband was completely healed. He was able to undertake successfully the creative, strenuous work that he most enjoyed.

In my own experience, when funds for my college education were lost in a bank failure, I prayed. Soon I was given a job playing in a radio station orchestra, which paid all my expenses. Later, when there was a widespread belief that there was little available work, I was offered two positions to choose between. Again I had the prayerful assistance of a practitioner, who shared with me Christ Jesus' command (Matt. 6:33) "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

One night I woke with severe pain in my side. At once I affirmed that God did not create the discomfort or know of it. I prayed for several hours, denying that the discord could have reality, and giving it no power or place. The understanding of God's all-power and presence rectifies the error of disease. By morning I was entirely free.
