Daughter healed of drug use

When I became a student of Christian Science, I was so glad to know about God’s constant guidance in everyone’s life. A few months after being introduced to Science I took Christian Science class instruction—a short but powerful course on how to pray effectively. The Monday after completing the class, I resigned my position as a private practice psychologist working in the movie industry, as well as my position as CEO of a large nonprofit drug abuse program. I immediately went into the Christian Science practice because I was already receiving calls to help others through prayer. 

In Christian Science class instruction I learned the importance of praying for the world, and not just for myself, my family, and the patients who called me. Sometime during those early weeks after class, I heard that there was going to be a television special on cocaine addiction. I didn’t think much about it. A few days later there was to be another program on drug addiction. Again, I ignored it. A few days later—yes, another program on drug addiction. This time I “woke up.” These back-to-back advertisements alerted me to pray for the world concerning these issues. I did not watch any of those programs, being very familiar with the subject from my past work experiences, but I spent the next few days praying for the world, specifically regarding drug abuse.
