PRAYER QUICKLY HEALS ILLNESS AND NAUSEA

In Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy describes Jesus' clear vision in these words: "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick" (pp. 476-477). I've found the instruction implied in this statement invaluable, both in my relations with others, as well as in praying for myself.

One morning when it was time for me to dress and get ready to go to work, I found I couldn't move. I felt ill and nauseated. As I addressed the situation prayerfully, I thought of this powerful admonition Mrs. Eddy gives in Science and Health: "Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously" (p. 392). And in the next paragraph, "Exercise this God-given authority. Take possession of your body, and govern its feeling and action. Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good. God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man" (p. 393).
