The power of prayer to heal

Some years ago, as I was listening to an inspirational talk, I marveled at an account the speaker shared of his complete recovery from a serious car accident through relying entirely on prayer. The seemingly miraculous account reminded me of Christ Jesus’ healings in the Bible, which I had learned about as a child in a Protestant Sunday School but frankly had not thought about since.

I wanted to know more about how this healing was possible. The speaker was a Christian Scientist, so I began attending the Wednesday testimony meetings at the local Christian Science Society. Here I heard the members joyously share how they had been healed of a range of difficulties by relying solely on the spiritual laws of God.

Inspired by this, I began to study Christian Science. Gradually I learned that spiritual healing was the natural outcome of understanding that God, Spirit, is the very source of our existence and that each of us, as God’s spiritual child, reflects and expresses the infinite goodness that constitutes God’s being.
