I have been attending the Christian Science Sunday School in Chandigarh, India, since I was little. There I have learned about God and God’s goodness, and also about how to pray. I want to share a healing I had through prayer.
A few years ago, I went to a hill station in South India with my family. A hill station is a town in the low mountains where the weather is cooler and it is nice to take a holiday.
I enjoyed this trip, but on the last day, while we were traveling, my stomach became upset. I was trying to continue participating in Antakshari—a game of songs—with my family, but the symptoms were very bad.
I was praying the way I had learned to pray in Sunday School. I prayed that I am a child of God. This means God cares for me and protects me. My mother was also praying. Very soon I fell asleep in the car. And when we reached our hotel room and I woke up, I was feeling better.
Then, at midnight I started throwing up again. I prayed to understand that God loves me as He loves all His children and meets their needs. After that I felt God’s love comforting me, and I was able to sleep peacefully. I was completely healed and felt fine during the rest of our trip back to Chandigarh.
I thank God for this healing, and I also thank my Sunday School teachers for teaching me how to pray.
