Powerful, healing prayer

A few months after my college roommate and I were introduced to Christian Science, we found ourselves in a situation where we needed help right away. Late one night I was cutting mats for some drawings with a knife that held a razorsharp blade. Mistakenly, I positioned my left hand in the path of the knife and cut my thumb severely.

I cried out in pain, and my roommate rushed to help me. We could both see it was a serious situation. I was afraid I might lose the thumb. We had to do something quickly. My roommate said, "Either we have to get you to the emergency room at the hospital or we have to use Christian Science." We'd seen clear evidence in our friends' lives that prayer could heal, and in this moment of need we wanted to turn to Christian Science.
