Originally written in French, this testimony appears in the May 2013 French, Spanish, German, and Portuguese editions of The Herald of Christian Science.
An hour or two after the birth of our first child at the hospital closest to our home—we lived near Paris at that time—the doctor came to tell us that there was a problem. The baby was vomiting blood. According to the diagnosis, there was a perforation in the little one’s stomach. In France, when the life of a newborn is considered at risk, the law mandates for the medical staff to take complete charge of the case. All needed steps had already been taken by the doctor to transport our son immediately to the main children’s hospital in Paris, where he would undergo an operation the next morning.
After overcoming our initial shock, my husband and I agreed at once to call a Christian Science practitioner to pray for our son. Both of us were students of Christian Science, and we’d had many proofs of the power of prayer in resolving all kinds of issues and in bringing physical healing.
