STEADFAST PRAYER HEALS KNEE PAIN

Early this year, I noticed a sharp pain in one of my knees whenever I bent it tightly, or knelt on it. When confronted with such a condition, I've always turned to prayer. This time, my prayer wasn't lengthy or wordy, but a simple, fervent declaration that this pain was impossible and untrue. I knew I had the authority to make such a statement because of what I was learning about God's nature as explained in the Bible and in Science and Health. These two books have taught me that God is good and that His goodness fills all space. I reasoned that pain in my knee did not fit in with this grand view of the divine allness—so either God's goodness was a lie, or else the pain was. I chose the truth of the goodness of God.

The pain persisted, however, preventing me from getting down on my knees. At one point, the condition worsened, making it difficult to even cross my legs. Yet I didn't lose sight of God's tender, ever-present care for me. In my prayers I continued to affirm that He was All, and that I was receptive to His unchangeable law of harmony. I knew that His spiritual law, not laws of matter, governed and maintained my entire being. In fact, I refused to consider a cause for this condition. I returned to my original declaration of God's goodness filling all space. This very fact prohibited God from causing a pain in my knee. It also barred pain from any other source, because there wasn't any place for pain—or a cause of pain—to exist in a universe filled exclusively with good.
