Quick recovery from burns

A few years back, I sustained serious burns on my hands, arms, and face. At first there was no pain, and I was able to assure those who witnessed the accident that all was well. A friend offered to drive me to a Christian Science nursing facility. Once I got in the car, I began to experience a great deal of pain, and I prayed as best I could to silence the aggressive suggestions. I asked my friend to call a Christian Science practitioner and request prayerful treatment for me.

When we arrived, the Christian Science nurses gently cleaned the wounds and shared metaphysical truths with me, but the pain intensified. I asked if there was anything they could do physically to lessen the pain temporarily so that I could think and pray. But when they asked me if I was requesting to go to an emergency room, I thought, “Absolutely not!” 

That conviction made me realize that the pain was not more powerful than the effectiveness of my prayers. I started giving myself a treatment out loud. I was declaring what was true about God and about man as God’s creation, and denying what was untrue. I asked the Christian Science nurses if they minded that I was praying aloud. Of course they did not.
