God's truth heals knee injury

One Sunday morning it had been raining earlier in the day. As we walked to our car after the church service, I found myself up in the air—and then down on one knee with my face against the car door. My husband immediately came to my side, and all I could say was, "No, no! 'There is no sensation in matter'" (Science and Health, p. 237). We then repeated "the scientific statement of being" from Scienceand Health (see p. 468) and the "Daily Prayer" from the Manual of the Mother Church (see Art. VIII, Sect. 4), both by Mary Baker Eddy. We also acknowledged my unbroken relation to my one and only creator and protector, God. I got up and dusted off the wet leaves. There was not a scratch, not even torn stockings. By the time we arrived at the restaurant for lunch, the pain on the side of my face had also vanished.

That evening I decided to go to bed a little earlier than usual. Several hours later, when I had to go to the bathroom, I found I could not put any weight on one of my legs. My dear husband helped me get to the bathroom. But there was no more sleep for either of us that night. We spent the time in prayer.
