How is your thinking today?

For several weeks I had not been able to eat solid food and often was in a lot of pain. I had canker sores all over my tongue and the roof of my mouth, and was having earaches. Also I was very unhappy. My wife and I had split up, and were in the process of getting a divorce.

All my life I had seen prayer heal myself and other people. So now, instead of going to a hospital, I went to a Christian Science nursing facility, where I knew I would receive practical care while I prayed for healing. I also called a Christian Science practitioner and asked him to pray for me. I told him all my problems. He didn't delve into those problems. But he did ask, "How is your thinking?" At first, I couldn't believe my ears. Why would he say such a thing? Then it dawned on me—I was choosing prayer for healing. Doing this meant directing treatment to the condition of my thought, instead of to my body. How was my thinking at that moment? Truthfully, it was very focused on all my problems.
