Prayer enlarges our vision

Originally Published in Le Heraut de la Christian Science

About two years ago I developed an eye infection, and my eye became swollen and very painful. I began to pray to solve this problem. Then I also asked for the prayer of a Christian Science practitioner.

I thought of a Bible passage that says, "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law" (Ps. 119:18). To my great joy, the signs of infection disappeared quickly. But then it reappeared, just as virulently, a few days later, and at first I was very discouraged. But then the thought came to me to go back to the Bible verse quoted above, and this time I tried to really understand its deeper meaning.
