Child's injured arm and wrist quickly healed

One day in gym class we were playing my favorite sport, soccer. I love it, and so does my dad. I was defending the goal, and a girl in my class was trying to score a goal. She kicked at the ball and caught my right arm with her foot as it continued to follow through with her kick. It hurt, and I had to stop playing. The girl didn't even say she was sorry. Having talked with my parents about what to do in the face of an emergency, I knew just what to do—call my parents and have them help me pray about it. The school staff and students were trying to be helpful, but they were concerned, because I couldn't move my wrist and hand, and they felt I should go to the hospital to get an X-ray to see if it was broken.

My dad came to school and picked me up, and right away we started praying. He called a Christian Science practitioner, who is someone who works full time helping to heal others through prayer. I talked with the practitioner and got some good ideas.
