About ten years ago I became aware of a growth on one of my eyelids. It was not painful, but I was constantly aware of it. One day as I dropped off my teenage son at school, I suggested that he act as practitioner for me and specifically pray to heal me of the condition. He had attended Sunday School since he was small, and I was confident he could and would pray effectively for me. I drove on to work that morning, and my son and I did not discuss this situation any further.

I considered citations from Mary Baker Eddy's writings regarding growth, especially from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. One statement was "What we most need is the prayer of fervent desire for growth in grace, expressed in patience, meekness, love, and good deeds" (p. 4). The next morning when I woke, I had difficulty opening my eye, and realized something was covering the eyelid. I washed this away, and saw the growth had drained during the night. A complete healing was rapid, and the condition disappeared, never to return.
