Prayer overcomes knee and ankle injuries

One day during my vacation last summer, I was on my front porch picking Japanese beetles off a rose bush when I suddenly fell off the porch and onto the ground. I was dazed but immediately turned to the spiritual truth that man is “unfallen, upright, pure, and free,” as Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 171 ). 

It was apparent that I had sprained my left ankle as well as my right knee when I fell. Having no cellphone with me to call for help, I needed to negotiate my way inside without the normal use of either leg. I thought back to an article I had read in the Sentinel just that morning titled “Rise” (Marilyn Wickstrom, June 26, 2017) in which the writer talked about feeling “a powerful surge of spiritual, mental might” that enabled her to take charge of her thought and resist the material claims.
