Basketball injury quickly healed

While playing basketball during gym class one day in 1997 just prior to Christmas vacation, my sixth-grade son, Ethan, injured his finger. He tried calling home, but I was out. So he called a friend, who was a Christian Science nurse. She spoke with him gently, assured him that she would call a Christian Science practitioner to pray for him and that she would keep trying to call me, too. I got her call just as I returned home.

I started to pray immediately. I knew Ethan's relationship, his link, to God was unbreakable. He couldn't be "whacked" out of harmony with God or separated from Him in any way. I continued to pray as I drove to the school to pick up Ethan. Then we prayed some more, and talked together. Part of our prayer included holding on to the truth that God made Ethan forever unbroken, perfect, and intact—spiritual. The Bible says that Jacob refused to let go of Godlike thoughts like these until he was blessed (see Gen. 32:24-32).
