Christian Science practitioner for a day

Last summer I took a service trip to Peru with my National Leadership Council class, a group of young Christian Scientists learning about servant leadership together. We were there to help plaster and paint a school in a village near the city of Cusco, and we would also teach English, art, sports, dance, and music to the students for several days. In order to spiritually support the trip, a Christian Science practitioner prayed from her home in the US—and each of us took turns being practitioners for a day as well. Everyone was assigned a buddy so we could pray together for the class throughout the day.

The night before it was going to be my turn to be the practitioner, I prepared readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, for the testimony meeting we would be having the next day. I chose passages that talk about how God loves His children, and how He is in constant communication with us and never leaves us alone. I fell asleep with those ideas fresh in my mind, knowing that the next day I could hold strongly to them and use them to pray for the class.
