Gratitude for healings

In light of worldwide concerns about the coronavirus pandemic over the past couple of years, I’d like to share some healings through prayer that my family and I have experienced.

When I was a senior in high school in 1958, a global influenza pandemic was rampant. Reports of deaths were constantly in the news. As I was nearing graduation, I came down with flu symptoms. My parents asked what kind of treatment I wanted to have. Since I had relied on Christian Science my whole life and had been blessed by being in a Christian Science Sunday School as I was growing up, I wanted to have Christian Science treatment. My parents knew from the many healings our family had seen over the years, including my healing of rubella as a youngster, that this was a wise and safe decision. 

We called a Christian Science practitioner who was a member of our church, and she was happy to pray for me. We talked daily, and her calm, clear understanding of God’s control and maintenance of my well-being assured me that because I was a child of God—divine Mind’s perfect, spiritual idea—there was no possibility that imperfection or disease could touch my experience. I had no doubt that I would be healed, and I was. I shortly regained the weight I had lost and attended my graduation ceremony.
