Prayer brings harmonious childbirth

For the first ten years of my marriage I was able to become pregnant only twice. In both cases I miscarried and experienced pain, but found healing and relief after seeking and receiving Christian Science treatment. 

Some time later, these words from Hymn 58 in the Christian Science Hymnal came to me: “expectant, joyful, / Ready for Thy right commands” (Elizabeth C. Adams). I saw this as an angel message from God telling me that I was expecting—and it was later confirmed that I was pregnant again. 

I called a Christian Science practitioner and expressed concern because of my previous miscarriages. She shared with me this phrase: “Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,” which affirms the truth that there is but one divine Parent of all, one creator, who is completely harmonious. Mary Baker Eddy uses these words to express her spiritual sense of the line in the Lord’s Prayer “Our Father which art in heaven” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 16). I had prayerful treatment in Christian Science throughout the pregnancy and went to full term.
