Dislocated finger healed

My eighteen-year-old son, Chris, was in the basement working out with a boxing bag with some of his friends when I heard him yell in pain and run upstairs, saying that he had dislocated his finger. Apparently, he hadn’t wrapped his fingers before hitting the bag, as recommended.

Chris has attended Christian Science Sunday School since he was little and has had many healings through prayer. I asked him what he wanted to do about his finger, and he said he wanted to go to an emergency clinic for X-rays. I told him to go upstairs and change and then I would take him. One of his friends, who is also a Christian Scientist, said that we should pray for him, and I know we all did.

I had just read a testimony in an issue of the Sentinel in which the author realized that she was not praying to change a physical problem she had. Instead, she was praising God for maintaining her present perfection as His spiritual creation. That resonated with me.
