A few years ago I returned home from a shopping trip with several loads of groceries for an upcoming holiday. I suddenly fell flat on my face on the sidewalk while carrying a bag into the house. When I fell I heard a loud sound, and feared that either my nose had been broken or that my teeth had been loosened.
As I lay on the ground these words came to me: "I accept my healing!" I affirmed this to be true three times. I could feel God's closeness, and after a few minutes managed to get up and go into the house. I telephoned a practitioner and told her what had happened. She began to pray for me, and also helped me to request the services of a Christian Science visiting nurse. I also phoned a close friend to ask if she could come and stay with me for a while.
My mouth was bleeding profusely at first. The practitioner gave me particular spiritual truths to consider in prayer. After I hung up the phone I found I had been instantaneously healed of this bleeding condition, although both my lips were still cut badly, and some teeth were loose. Shortly both my friend and the nurse came and bandaged my foot and my ankle, which was swollen. As my friend left, she said she was privileged to see such a quick healing taking place.
