Child’s fever quickly healed

One day around lunchtime my young daughter, Gracie, was very tired and began to feel warm. My husband and I have seen so many healings in our family through prayer, and I immediately began to pray for her. She had been learning in the Christian Science Sunday School that God loves her and all of His children, and that He doesn’t send us sickness. Gracie has always been receptive to hearing that God is good and is always taking care of her. 

In my prayers for my daughter, I persisted in seeing what was spiritually true about her, acknowledging her present perfection and wholeness as God’s reflection. 

I let her rest that afternoon. When she woke up later in the day, she still felt warm. Not wanting the fever to linger, I called a Christian Science practitioner and asked him to support my prayers with Christian Science treatment. He told me he would get right to work praying for her, and immediately calmed my fears by reminding me of God’s love for Gracie, adding that fever was nothing more than fear manifested on the body, and divine Love dispels fear. Once I got off the phone with the practitioner, I saw more clearly that fever, just like fear, is not real because it does not come from God, and it is no part of His child.
