To be an effective healer

It is natural to want to help and heal others through prayer. Praying for others isn’t scary—it’s deeply fulfilling. It’s motivated by our love for God and man. Whether or not we advertise publicly in The Christian Science Journal as full-time Christian Science practitioners, all of us can help others through the practice of Christian Science healing. The conditions and standards of practice are the same for us all. Each one needs to do what is necessary to give effective help.

I confronted head-on the aggressive and false suggestion that I couldn’t heal.

To an early practitioner, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, wrote: “Every day treat yourself that no evil suggestion nor argument can swerve you or frighten you—or deter you from healing and doing just what is needed here …. No evil mind can touch you if you realize there is but one Mind. Three times each day treat yourself for this temptation then watch that your house be not broken open” (Mary Baker Eddy to Alfred E. Baker, 2 February 1899, F00147, © The Mary Baker Eddy Collection).
