Burn healed quickly

This is adapted from a testimony originally posted during The Mother Church’s online Wednesday testimony meeting.

One of the things I cherish most about prayer in Christian Science is the stillness and quiet confidence in God’s omnipresent care in the face of emergencies or suffering. An early example in my life took place when I was ten years old. 

One summer evening we were all sitting at the table in our shorts as my mother served a favorite dinner—chicken and dumplings. Suddenly she tripped, spilling the bubbling liquid on my bare leg. Immediately she began to wipe it off, but it hurt. I just wanted to turn my thought away from the body and be alone with God, because I had seen many times how quickly prayer heals pain. So I went into the living room and declared out loud, “There is no sensation in matter!”
