Young daughters quickly healed

Originally published in French

When I was very young, my parents gave me the most beautiful gift of my life: Christian Science. And I am passing on this gift to my children. It’s given me a better understanding of my relation to God, infinite good, and has allowed me to find comfort in difficult times. It’s guided me out of dead ends we can sometimes get stuck in, and has brought healing.

For example, one morning a number of years ago, I received a call at the office from my wife at the time. She said that the nurse at our daughter’s nursery school had called to ask us to come and get our daughter immediately, explaining that she was displaying various symptoms, including colic. She also told me that our other daughter, who was too young to attend school, had similar symptoms.

My wife was not a Christian Scientist, and we had an agreement that if one of our children was ill, I would pray immediately, and if the child did not get better quickly, we would take her to the doctor. Our family had experienced countless healings through prayer, without the need of any further help. So I thanked my wife for her call and found a quiet corner in the office to be alone and pray.
