Quick healing after a fall

About two years ago, I had been spending a lot of time praying with the ideas in an article entitled “This world of infinite Love” by Julia M. Johnston, published in The Christian Science Journal in August 1955. She wrote: “All expressions of Life emanate from the individuality of Love, are inseparable from it and permeated by it. All the elements of creation are preserved in the unfoldment of perfect being. Hence existence is the enjoyment of fundamental transcendent reality.” I found the ideas in this article riveting, and they inspired me to apply them in my life. 

Shortly after reading the article again, I was hurriedly trying to finish up a project and rushing to get downstairs, when I slipped and went crashing down my oak staircase, landing on the tile floor at the bottom. Needless to say, I regretted my decision to remove the carpet a few weeks earlier, which would have provided a little more cushioning. 

I landed on my spine and heard a cracking sound. My family came running. They helped me to a couch and laid me down. I asked my wife to immediately call a Christian Science practitioner—an individual who helps others through prayer—to pray for me, as I was in considerable pain and thought I might lose consciousness. She was very concerned and went to the phone immediately. My very dear teenage sons began praying for me, and I began to try to get hold of my thinking, which was being bombarded with all kinds of awful suggestions about what might be my prognosis.
