Hearing restored

Growing up in a Christian Science Sunday School, I had learned that we are all the perfect children of God, and that a clear understanding of this fact heals. This was demonstrated to me when I experienced difficulty with my hearing in elementary school.

The students in our school system were required to participate in sight and hearing tests every two years. I failed my hearing test in fifth grade, and it was discovered that I had a damaged eardrum and was partially deaf in one ear. My parents were given the recommendation that I see an ear specialist to discuss further treatment for this condition. However, my parents decided to rely solely on prayer for healing, and I was given no medical treatment. 

My mother told me she prayed with the idea that the true senses are spiritual and cannot be lost. She also worked with the definition of ears in the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, which reads in part: “Ears. Not organs of the so-called corporeal senses, but spiritual understanding” (p. 585).
