Healed of severe digestive condition

When discussing prayer, Christ Jesus said, “Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matt. 6:8). In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy phrased the concept this way: “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need” (p. 494). She also said, “Remember, thou canst be brought into no condition, be it ever so severe, where Love has not been before thee and where its tender lesson is not awaiting thee” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp. 149–150). It might appear that the human condition we see ourselves in is outside the reach of Spirit, God, because Spirit can’t be seen with the material senses. But this all-encompassing, all-embracing God, who loves His creation, would never allow what He creates to be cut off from His loving care.

This was brought home to me through an experience I had some years ago. I had been struggling intermittently with a digestive problem that involved considerable pain. I occasionally called a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer when one of these bouts occurred, and each time I felt the assurance of God’s care and the unreality of any inharmonious situation. The episodes had been unsettling, but brief, and they had not resulted in any significant interruption in my work at a manufacturing company, where I was the travel coordinator.
