FREE FROM MIGRAINES

In April 2007, while I was out for a walk, the familiar dull symptoms of a migraine began to come on. For a number of years, I'd struggled with these headaches, and as a student of Christian Science, I'd found it effective to treat the situation through prayer. Usually, I'd call a Christian Science practitioner for help.

So, in this case, my first response was to pray, acknowledging that I was God's child, naturally comfortable and free in His care. When I arrived at my apartment, I found I was facing a barrage of thoughts that claimed my day and evening were now ruined, that I should just go ahead and cancel any plans. But right then part of "A Rule for Motives and Acts" from the Church Manual by Mary Baker Eddy came to thought: "The members of this Church should daily watch and pray to be delivered from all evil, from prophesying, judging, condemning, counseling, influencing or being influenced erroneously" (p. 40).
