Knee injury healed

While downhill skiing several years ago, I felt something give way in my knee as I was going around a mogul. I was able to continue to the bottom of the hill, but the knee would no longer support me in certain motions. 

I took the time to declare that I was spiritual, not material, and to declare, as the Christian Science textbook counsels in relation to accidents, that I was not hurt, and to “understand the reason why.” The reason is that God, good, is All, “as the Scriptures declare Him to be” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 397). On this basis, I was confident that accidents could have no place in God’s kingdom.

I continued to pray along this line for the rest of the day, but that night in the hotel the pain in the knee was intense. At one point, I reached out to God and just asked for help, acknowledging as Jesus did that “I can of mine own self do nothing” (John 5:30). The pain immediately lessened, and I was able to go to sleep.
