When my children had grown up and left home, I began experiencing considerable pain in my abdomen. It felt as though my womb was dropping or had dropped.

Through Christian Science, I'd been healed of that condition in a milder form a year before. At that time I'd prayed with the simple words, "God holds." Quoting from Proverbs 30:4, Science and Health refers to God as Spirit, promising that "moral and spiritual might belong to Spirit, who holds the 'wind in His fists;'and this teaching accords with Science and harmony" (p.192). Often, simple thoughts are the most helpful to me, and the concept of God holding all creation in a state of harmony had been much in my thought. I had already used this idea that "God holds" all creation in a state of harmony when praying about a threatening wind when my husband and I were driving in southern France. Relating it to the pain and discomfort I felt, I had found the physical evidence of prolapse, including the pain, quickly healed.
