God is there to help

One Sunday morning I had a very bad toothache. My mom had taught me to pray to God when I have a problem. So that morning I prayed to God and said, “Dear God, please make my tooth feel better.” I knew God would help me because God is Love and takes care of us. God gives us health and happiness and hope.

After that I prayed the Lord’s Prayer (see Matthew 6:9–13). One line of the Lord’s Prayer says, “Deliver us from evil,” and I like knowing that’s what God does. My toothache was evil because it was not making me feel good. 

About ten minutes after praying this way, I felt better. My toothache was totally gone, and I was so excited to tell my mom and my Christian Science Sunday School teacher about my healing.

I’ve learned to pray to God each time I have a problem, because God is always there to help.
