Injured arm healed spiritually

The instructor called out as I prepared to execute my first-ever somersault on the trampoline. My classmates standing around the tramp all shouted encouragement, as I was the first in class to attempt this feat. When I landed, however, one arm crumpled awkwardly under my body. There was immediate pain, and I asked the instructor if I could be excused. She saw my discomfort and granted my request. She knew that I was a Christian Scientist and wanted to be alone to pray.

In the quiet of the locker room, I held tightly to my arm and marched up and down enthusiastically singing hymns. The pain subsided. I was away at college at the time, so I went to the home of my Sunday School teacher, who kindly took care of my needs in a loving atmosphere, fully expecting healing. A Christian Science practitioner was called, and she began praying for me immediately.

In talking to the practitioner, I told her that I hoped the healing would be quick, because I knew my peers and teachers would be worried about me. I was feeling a responsibility to show them that I could be healed through Christian Science.
