Wednesday evening testimony meetings: a place for healing

Who doesn't have some problem he or she wants to have healed? One way we can open the door for this blessing and start the process is by attending a Christian Science Wednesday evening meeting.

In these meetings people tell of healings and experiences they have had through Christian Science. Their experiences of God's care inspire hope. We mutually rejoice with them. Many testify how spiritually enlightened prayer has resolved physical, social, financial, or other specific problems. They often explain something of how they prayed, what steps they took in correcting wrong, and how they became more impelled by God's love in their daily affairs. They relate how prayer not only awakened their thought but quieted it from fear and frustration so it was ready to accept God's love. They often explain how this love of God, when honestly trusted in, brought physical healing or met some other human need.

Although in many instances physical healing is the immediate need being sought, as one continues in Christian Science an inner spiritual awakening begins to emerge. One gains a desire for better thinking and motives. Healing takes on a deeper meaning, and one longs to understand and learn more of these spiritual truths. Healing prayer in Christian Science involves systematic, spiritual reasoning through which one discovers the tangible qualities and values of God's love for man, His beloved child. Such prayer is much more than hopeful petition for something better. It's the acknowledgment and acceptance of what God is being and doing and of man's genuine relationship to God as His image and likeness, as God's reflection, His expression.
