Since I am usually praying over some current problem, I often find myself saying, "When this problem is met, then I'll write a testimony." Recently, however, I remembered a statement from Science and Health that reads, "If pride, superstition, or any error prevents the honest recognition of benefits received, this will be a hindrance to the recovery of the sick and the success of the student" (p. 372). So, in this spirit I wish to share a healing experience I had some years ago while traveling with my husband and children.

We were on the last lap of an extended camping vacation when I was suddenly stricken with severe abdominal pain. My prayers and those of my family seemed ineffectual, and I became alarmed. The temptation to determine a name for the problem kept coming to me, but I realized that this kind of guesswork was not helpful.
