Prayer heals injured arm and shoulder

As an elementary school teacher, I am very busy for the first part of the morning. One day, I was moving away quickly from a cupboard and fell over a playground ball. I reached out to catch myself and proceeded to twist my shoulder and arm into an unusually painful position. As I lay on the floor, unable to move, my immediate reaction was to pray silently for help from God. An immediate answer to my prayer was the support and calmness of my students as I attempted to get up. As I rose, I found that I needed some assistance to move because of feeling nauseated, so I decided to go to the office. Once there, I finally had time to pull my thoughts in line with God and His allness, and I also called a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. I continued praying in this peaceful setting. I was calmed by these words of a hymn (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 53):
