Warts eradicated

When my daughter was 11 years old, a wart on her hand that had become infected was quickly healed through prayer. She prayed as she had been taught in Christian Science Sunday School, supported by the prayer of a Christian Science practitioner. Inspired by this healing, my mother also was quickly healed of a wart.

Shortly after this, a wart appeared on one of my fingers. It stayed there for 13 years. Often it was painful. I was teaching piano during much of this period and tried to hide the ugly condition from my students. (One of them had commented: “What is that? Yuck!”) I felt that surely someday I would get this thing healed also, but my life felt too busy for me to take the time to pray about it.

In 1991 my daughter was married. The bridegroom’s family all came early in the week before the wedding and were in church with us on Wednesday evening. His sister gave a lovely testimony about God’s eternal nowness—a concept I had never thought about before. That weekend I was very busy as the mother of the bride, but the idea of the power of God’s presence, His nowness, just kept singing in my thought. I didn’t think about it in relation to the wart at all, but on Monday morning, after the wedding, I realized that the wart was considerably smaller. Within a couple of days, it was completely gone and has never returned.
