Two healings and the Lord’s Prayer

In the first chapter of the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy gives the reader a deep, clear sense of the elements of prayer.

I was very afraid—even though he was not in pain or even concerned about what was happening. I was so grateful for the peaceful sense he exhibited.
