How can we have quicker healings?

Jesus was able to heal not only consistently but instantly.

Over many years of practicing Christian Science healing, I’ve loved seeing prayer resolve everything from employment and relationship problems to health issues. But often I’ve wished that these healings had happened more quickly.

Healing is the result of effective prayer. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, offers many helpful instructions about how to pray in a way that brings healing. In fact, in her textbook on healing, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, she has a whole chapter on this topic, titled “Christian Science Practice.” Wonderful results occur when we follow the guidance in this chapter and throughout the textbook, based as they so fully are on Jesus’ teachings and healing practice and on Mrs. Eddy’s own remarkable healing work over a lifetime. 

Sometimes healing takes much prayer. Great spiritual growth often accompanies these healings. But contrast these experiences with Jesus’ healing ministry: He was able to heal not only consistently but instantly.
