Many years ago, I had the opportunity to demonstrate the persistence Mary Baker Eddy calls for when dealing with seemingly insurmountable challenges. I was in high school and spent many weekends out at a relative’s farm riding my horse. One week, my legs began to feel stiff and sore. I initially wrote it off as a delayed result of all the riding I had done the previous weekend, but the stiffness and pain accelerated, and my condition quickly deteriorated to the point where I couldn’t walk. It didn’t take long to realize I needed to start praying about it.
Though my mother was praying with me, we decided to call a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful help. He lovingly agreed and gave us some inspiring thoughts to work with. The main idea was that man is inseparable from his creator.
