Freedom of movement restored

Recently I had a healing of pain in my knee that had made it nearly impossible to walk. The lessons I learned from this experience remind me of the importance Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, placed on the expression of gratitude for healing through prayer.

I had been taking regular early morning walks for some time, when I suddenly noticed that my right knee began to hurt. It wasn't, however, until a few days later, when I was attending a summer study session at a nearby college, that the problem became acute. Once before, some years prior, I'd had a similar feeling and had been able to treat it simply with sudden dismissal, and I was grateful for the immediate healing. I had learned many rules for the metaphysical treatment of physical problems from reading Mrs. Eddy's book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. This guidance was particularly helpful: "Treat a belief in sickness as you would sin, with sudden dismissal. Resist the temptation to believe in matter as intelligent, as having sensation or power" (p. 218 ).
