Broken leg healed

Those skeptical of the efficacy of Christian Science healing often ask, “What would you do if you broke your leg?” Several years ago, I learned the answer to that question while on a ski weekend in northern New Hampshire. I was skiing by myself on a little-used run with fresh snow. It was toward the end of the season and there were few people on the slopes. The tip of my ski caught something, causing me to fall violently. My skis did not release. I found myself lying on my back with my lower left leg in great pain. 

Initially, I thought the pain would pass and I would be able to continue the run, but this was not so. Since I had been raised in Christian Science, the thought came to me right away that I could pray about the situation. This is something I do quite naturally, and I always experience healing. As I lay there, a deep calm came over me. I felt a strong assurance that God would provide an answer. Despite the pain, I was very aware of God’s caring presence. I knew the healing had already begun.
