Fear and pain healed

One day after work, some coworkers and I were setting up a Thanksgiving gratitude tree, when suddenly I felt pain on the right side of my body. I left the group and went to sit down. I prayed for myself, but could not concentrate because I was very afraid.

After a few minutes, a coworker came and asked me how I was doing. I told her I was not feeling well. She asked, “What would you like me to do?” I asked her to pray for me. My coworker was also a Christian Scientist, and I knew she was accustomed to turning to prayer for healing. I closed my eyes, and she read aloud the answer to the question “What is man?” in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, which begins: “Man is not matter; he is not made up of brain, blood, bones, and other material elements. The Scriptures inform us that man is made in the image and likeness of God. Matter is not that likeness.” Further on it continues, “Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not physique” (p. 475 ). As she read this explanation, she replaced the word man with my name. It was very sweet to hear. Immediately, the fear diminished, and I felt an assurance that there was nothing to worry about.
