How I prayed when I felt sick before my exams

Four days before my science finals in school, I started experiencing the symptoms of a cold. At first, the sneezing and coughing weren’t that bad, but by the next morning, they’d become very aggressive. 

Because I’ve had many healings through Christian Science, I quickly called a Christian Science practitioner (who was also my Christian Science Sunday School teacher) and asked for her prayerful help. She lovingly agreed to pray for me and reminded me of what we’d been doing in my Sunday School in Chandigarh: Two weeks before, we had talked about issues that might come up during our exams, and our teachers had asked us to write down spiritual ideas to help us pray about those problems in advance. We’d used that week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson (found in the Christian Science Quarterly) on the subject “Mind” as our inspiration. The practitioner suggested I refer back to that list of issues and read my answer to the question about how I could pray if I wasn’t feeling well before an exam.

We'd love to hear from you!
