Health care: a spiritual perspective

Because of daily medical news reports and health-care law updates, I have been thinking about how to pray about health care. 

The Bible and these periodicals are full of accounts that show healing as a result of practicing Christian Science, which relies on the laws of God for health. In an article titled “The potency and power of Christian Science healing,” Nathan Talbot wrote, “Christian Science presents the Comforter that Christianizes, instead of medicalizes, human consciousness” (The Christian Science Journal, May 2017). So how can we uplift or Christianize our consciousness to experience reliable health care?

True health comes into our experience through a change in consciousness. For me that change involves exchanging thoughts that need rejecting for the true sense of health. So, what am I rejecting in thought? The concept that life and health are based solely on a physical body subject to physical and material laws; that only drugs, chemicals, radiation, or surgery can heal; that sickness and disease are inevitable and real. I exchange this view for a new and true concept of health that is found through an understanding of God.
