Freedom from acute abdominal pain

Since beginning the study of Christian Science almost ten years ago, I have had healings of various physical ailments through prayer. In my early days of study, after receiving treatment from a Christian Science practitioner, I was able to quit a prescription drug that I had taken for years—one doctors said I would require for life.

However, I sometimes found that physical symptoms of any kind of illness, even minor, would cloud my thinking. Doubts would set in. But I have learned that whenever I become fearful, it is helpful to begin my prayers by first acknowledging the allness of God. To acknowledge the allness of God is to get at the very heart of Christian Science treatment, which is based on the understanding that God is everywhere and fills all space—which leaves no room for anything but God and His perfect creation; no room for anything unlike God, good. We are actually God’s spiritual image and likeness, and that likeness cannot be held captive to pain or discord of any sort. Reflecting on this truth works to dissolve my fears and helps me better understand the nature of man as completely spiritual, and understand my own wholly spiritual identity.
