MOBILITY QUICKLY RESTORED

My husband and I took a road trip this past summer, driving from our home in the Midwest to Washington, DC. A few hours before arriving in the city, we took a break at a rest stop. Getting out of the car, I suddenly realized that I was unable to put any weight on one of my legs, nor could I walk. I should add that my leg wasn't "asleep," nor was it numb.

As I was mentally sizing up the situation, I could feel fear and self-diagnosis grab hold of my thoughts and start yanking away from me my ability to think from a correct spiritual standpoint. It felt as if my mental freedom was being challenged and overrun. But I knew from prior experience that prayer heals, and I also knew that I had spiritual authority not to let what Science and Health terms "error"—or the contradiction of God, Truth—wrest control of my thinking (see p. 472). So I silently protested with a persistent "No." Leaning against the car for support, I turned to God and prayed like this: "OK, God. You are Truth. And You destroy error. What exact, specific, healing idea are You telling me right this moment that destroys the error?"
