Last year when I was playing in the kitchen with my sister, I knocked over our heavy chair and it fell right on my big toe. Even though it hurt a lot—and my sister and my parents looked worried—I knew I could pray like I learned in the Christian Science Sunday School.
I went upstairs to my room and I sang Mary Baker Eddy’s hymn that starts “Shepherd, show me how to go” (Christian Science Hymnal, Hymn 307). This hymn often comes to me when I need help and I like to pray with it.
I liked the part of the hymn that says: “I will listen for Thy voice, / Lest my footsteps stray.” To me this meant that I could LISTEN for God’s good thoughts that would help me right then with my foot.
