I could take my test

The night before my final exam, I went to my friend’s house to see his parrot. I was so happy to see the bird that I could not stop myself from touching it. But as I came closer, the parrot bit my finger.

My finger hurt and was bleeding, so I went home. I asked my mother to pray for me. She told me that because God’s creation is all good, God’s creatures must be harmless.


I was worried because the parrot had bitten me on my writing hand, and I had my test the next day. My mother cared for me and told me not to worry; she was praying and that all was well because God was taking care of me. I am a regular student in the Christian Science Sunday School, where I’ve learned that God loves His children and always protects them. 

So, I went back to playing, but I was praying with “Love is reflected in love” from Mary Baker Eddy’s spiritual interpretation of the Lord’s Prayer (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 17). I thought that I could feel only love, not pain. As I played, I totally forgot about my finger, and later I noticed the bleeding had stopped and the pain was gone. 

The next day I was getting ready for school, and I found there was not even a mark on my finger. I was so happy that I could do my test easily. I thank God for this quick healing and for His love.
