My relatives saw that I was healed

Originally appeared online in the teen series Your Healings -  May 24, 2022

I was staying with my aunt while my parents were away for work. It was the first time I’d stayed anywhere for a long time without my mom and dad. 

One day I started coughing badly. For a few days I ignored it, but then the symptoms became so intense and painful that I couldn’t sleep at night. Because I’ve gone to Christian Science Sunday School since I was little, my first thought was to pray about this. So, I called a Christian Science practitioner back home in Chandigarh to pray with me. She reminded me of “the scientific statement of being” in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 468) and encouraged me to read it and understand it better, which I tried to do.

My aunt was worried about me, and since she is not a Christian Scientist, she wanted me to take medicine. But I told her that I wanted to rely on God for healing. As she’d heard about the healings my family had had through prayer, she supported me and didn’t ask me to take medicine again.
