Injured foot healed

It had been a whirlwind trip to visit my new great-nephew. It was a fun time seeing the new baby and others I hadn’t seen for a while. The day after I returned home, my right foot was painful, and it was almost impossible to walk on it. I prayed to more fully understand this truth from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “… there is no room for imperfection in perfection” (p. 424). 

In prayer, I claimed my spiritual identity as God’s ageless reflection. I also affirmed that God, who is all good, fills all space, so there can be no room for evil anywhere. I knew that as His image—His spiritual idea—I reflected right activity, and that walking could not harm a spiritual idea of God. 

The next day, it was difficult to get around or do errands, so I asked for prayerful treatment from a Christian Science practitioner, and she agreed to pray for me. Later that day, I put on a pair of shoes that were loose and comfortable to do some errands. But I still wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to get into the grocery store, as I could hardly put weight on the foot.
