Healing of painful, swollen foot

First published in O Arauto da Ciência Cristã, the Portuguese edition of The Herald of Christian Science.

I have had many healings through the study of Christian Science. But one in particular was very important to me. It occurred four years ago while I was visiting Paris to attend my Christian Science association, which is an annual meeting of students who took Christian Science Primary class instruction with a Christian Science teacher. After leaving the meeting, feeling very inspired by the ideas that had been shared, I took a walk through Paris with two association friends. During this outing, I twisted my foot and fell. I felt a very sharp pain. My friends helped me get up and we continued our walk. After five minutes, I realized I couldn’t continue because the pain had become more intense. So I asked to return to the hotel.

That night, I couldn’t sleep because my foot was swollen and hurt a lot. My temperature was also elevated, as if I had a fever. I then decided to call a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer. I told her what had happened and how I felt. She calmed me down and prayed with me for a few minutes. Soon after, I was able to fall asleep.
