Prayer brings healing and spiritual growth

Last year, as I was picking up my two-year-old son at school, his teacher called my attention to several places on his neck where there was a red rash. The rashes appeared to be spreading to other parts of his body as well.

I got a bit scared at that moment, because I remembered that I had had severe allergy outbreaks in childhood and as an adult. I didn’t know Christian Science back then and had relied on medicine for relief. Although I had been totally free from the condition for about ten years, I didn’t want my child to have the same experience.

So, within seconds I realized that I should not be impressed by the condition and should overcome the thoughts of fear. I mentally declared “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. This statement says, in part: “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all” (p. 468).
