A line in the Lord's Prayer helped me when I was involved in an accident recently: "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven" means to me that I must let God's will be done by trusting in Him to supply my every need.

While attending a private school, my homeroom class was chosen to camp for a week in the Grampians, a large National Park in Australia. This park is covered by bush, eucalyptus trees, large rocks, and colorful wildflowers. In this rugged territory, there are many koalas and wallabies.

My friends and I were taking shortcuts by walking over rocks. Suddenly I jumped off a very large rock and hit the ground with a hard thud. My ankle hurt a lot, and our camp counselor told me it was badly sprained. He then went to get the first-aid kit. I was the only Christian Scientist on the campout, and at first the fear that I was injured enveloped me. I quickly saw the error of this thinking; understanding that my spiritual perfection could not change, I mentally refused to believe this error.
