Destination healing

I was headed to Europe! Along with a group of my fellow teenage tennis players, I would be spending three weeks participating in tennis tournaments in several different countries. 

One of the ideas I’ve learned from attending a Christian Science Sunday School is that God is our Father-Mother. And since God is infinite, filling all space, and ever present, that means that my divine Father-Mother is with me wherever I go. To prepare for the trip, I prayed to know I would be protected everywhere I traveled, since I can never be outside the care of an infinite God. I also prayed to understand that even though my parents wouldn’t be with me, I was never without help and guidance, since my Father-Mother God is always present. 

The trip was a lot of fun—both the sightseeing and the tournaments. There were many small opportunities to pray, and I frequently thought about my connection with God. But the most memorable healing occurred about halfway through the trip.
