Peace came on a ‘Gabriel’ day

A healing I had a few years ago while serving as First Reader at our branch Church of Christ, Scientist, brought me a lesson that has often been helpful. One Sunday after the service I was not feeling well and began to pray. However, by the next day the sense of fever and congestion was such that I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. 

By Tuesday the fever was gone, but the coughing seemed so severe that I asked a friend to substitute for me at our Wednesday testimony meeting. Sleeping was difficult, and I spent much of my time in prayer. I strongly affirmed that because God is all-powerful and ever present, this condition was a lie about His creation—it wasn’t part of me as His beloved child.
