Prayer eliminates extreme fear

I've had many healings of physical difficulties through the study of Christian Science, including an injured knee that made walking very difficult, severe back pain at a time when I needed to move my workplace, recurring headaches, and earaches. I have also had many healings of fear, relationship difficulties, and inharmonious situations. Through these healings and daily proofs, large and small, I learn more of how God guards, guides, loves, and cares for me and all of His children. I would like to share two healings that stand out to me.

The Bible says, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear" (I John 4:18). As a child, and even into adulthood, I was terrified by storms. Living in an area where violent summer storms frequently occur certainly offered many opportunities to overcome this fear. While attending a Christian Science Sunday School I learned about God's great love and protection. This was helpful, but each time a storm occurred I was frightened and barely able to function.
