FREE FROM PANIC ATTACKS

A few years ago, I began to suffer from what I think were panic attacks, with a pounding heart and other symptoms. It was quite frightening. When an attack occurred, I would pray the Lord's Prayer with its scientific interpretation from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and "the scientific statement of being," also from Science and Health. I would contemplate every word.

For example, in Mrs. Eddy's interpretation of the first line of the Lord's Prayer, "Our Father which art in heaven," she writes, "Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious" (Science and Health, p. 16). To me, this meant my Father-Mother is caring for me. I live in His harmony. Then, the line, "Thy kingdom come," she interprets: "Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present." That means to me that God is here and always with me and I with him. And the line, "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven," she interprets: "Enable us to know,—as in heaven, so on earth,—God is omnipotent, supreme." So all there is is love—and I am part of it.
