Many years ago I slipped on a wet deck behind our home

Many years ago I slipped on a wet deck behind our home. As a result, one of my ankles was painful and swollen, and not much weight could be placed on it without discomfort. At my request, a Christian Science practitioner prayed for me, and the pain was quickly healed. I used crutches for a very short time. When Wednesday came I was able to attend the testimony meeting in our branch church (without the crutches) and with a dear friend assisting me as I walked into church.

Through the prayers of the practitioner, I realized that there was a feeling of separation between a relative and me—a broken friendship, so to speak. As an outcome of prayer, friendly relations returned, and this family member and I exchanged Christmas gifts. The ankle was healed as my understanding of man's true oneness with God increased. This included seeing others in their real, spiritual natures as God's children.
