Healed of sudden immobility

I awoke one morning and found I couldn’t stand up or use my arms or legs; they were shaking. I didn’t know what had happened to me and was very fearful. My wife said she didn’t think she could get me to the car to take me to the hospital. I let her know that would not be necessary. I wanted to rely totally on God and metaphysical treatment. 

With her help and a chair to lean on, I made it to the lounge room and sat down. I then asked my wife to look in the directory of The Christian Science Journal and find the number of a Christian Science practitioner whom I knew. Since I wasn’t able to hold the phone steady, my wife dialed the practitioner’s number and put the phone on speaker.

I spoke to the practitioner, who immediately started praying for me and assuring me of God’s omnipotence and control over the body. I remember that she also talked about this difficulty being a waking dream of mortal existence and said that the evidence of the material senses should not be believed. Only what God, or spiritual sense, tells us is true. The practitioner asked me to ring back in one hour.
