Chest pains eliminated
I am very grateful for God's loving care for me and my family, and for the many healings we have had through prayer. These have included a sprained toe, strep throat, wasp stings, fevers, the effects of falls, and much more. One healing particularly stands out to me.
A little over seven years ago I was working full time while caring for our baby boy. The nature of my job was such that it included what we fondly referred to in the magazine publishing industry as "drop dead deadlines." It was typical for our entire department to work furiously up until the last moment in order to meet these final deadlines. I was also rising several times a night in order to nurse my son. It seemed as if I were burning the candle at both ends.
During this time I unexpectedly developed alarming chest pains. Many times I had witnessed and experienced God's healing power, so it was natural for me to turn to God when I was gripped by these pains. I knew that my true identity was entirely spiritual and that these chest pains were not part of God's creation. Still, I was afraid of what might happen if this condition continued. I quickly contacted a Christian Science practitioner for healing. She immediately assured me that I could be under no stress and agreed to pray for me.
