Effects of a fall healed quickly through prayer

As I was about to descend a flight of cement steps, my foot caught, sending me unceremoniously rolling the whole way to the bottom. My daughter and a church friend who were with me immediately expressed concern and offered help. I asked just for a little time to sit quietly, and turned instantly to prayer. The first words that came to thought were from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Never born and never dying, it were impossible for man, under the government of God in eternal Science, to fall from his high estate” (p. 258). “Right!” I said to myself. “I can’t fall. God only uplifts!”  

I recognized that God, divine Love, was the only cause and the only effect, and that cause and effect were entirely spiritual. No right activity could even for a moment separate me from God’s law of good. As God’s perfect and spiritual image, my entire being was as a spiritual reflection. As a reflection of divine Love, I knew fear could not touch me. I clung to the Bible truth from First John that states, “Perfect love casteth out fear” (4:18). I immediately felt my own fears begin to subside, and I sensed that the fears of my daughter and my friend for me were also dissipating.
