Freed of flu symptoms through steadfast prayer

One Friday morning a few months ago, anticipating a weekend full of love-filled obligations, I woke up with very aggressive symptoms of the flu. Immediately, as I do every morning before my feet hit the floor, I prayed to God. I love pondering deeply each line of the Lord’s Prayer. I also affirm that God is Mind, the only Mind guiding every thought of the day. And I firmly deny that there is any other mind opposing that.

The symptoms continued to be assertive, so I found it necessary to be even more diligent in my prayer that day. I knew that God, our Father-Mother, was watching over me. I reminded myself that in the kingdom of God, divine Love, is a strong defense. How did I know that? Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, wrote in an article titled “Contagion” in Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, “A calm, Christian state of mind is a better preventive of contagion than a drug, or than any other possible sanative method; and the ‘perfect Love’ that ‘casteth out fear’ is a sure defense” (p. 229).
