NEW TESTIMONIES OF HEALING:


Cancer Healed 
A friend came to me seeking help, as his wife had been suffering from a type of cancer. Mortal mind had painted an ugly picture, and it appeared as if death was the only solution. Although my friend previously had some healings in Christian Science, his wife's case appeared to be much more serious than anything he had faced. It didn't matter. When he was narrating the story about his wife's illness, l was refusing to accept the lie, correcting it with the absolute truth about man. I recalled this powerful idea from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick.” (476:32-4) This citation helped me to realize the nothingness of the belief in disease. 

l asked the wife for permission to pray for her, and she was so happy to have spiritual support. Working with the absolute truth of being, it was so clear to me that nothing could hide her perfection. Life being God Himself, I knew the belief in death was just an illusion too ugly to be seen or believed by man, who is made in the image and likeness of God, his Maker. With the help of this scripture, “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear” (Isaiah:65:24), l helped both of them to have faith that the Kingdom of God is always at hand.  

In my silent prayer l insisted on the wife's perfection, knowing very well that evil has no form, name, identity nor reality. In Science, man can never be sick, for to believe that lie is disobedience to the First Commandment, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3) Understanding God to be All-in-all and the only power, l was so confident as the Bible reassures, "…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (II Cor: 6:2) They both liked the idea that healing can be, and indeed always is, instantaneous. With a smile, I told the husband, “This day is salvation come to this house.” (Luke 19:9) In accordance with Jesus’ counsel in Mark (11:24), “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe [understand] that ye receive them, and ye shall have them,” I encouraged the woman that, from that moment on, she should accept the truth that she was well.  

A few days later I was told she improved and felt healed. She has been well since then. One day she found herself in the hands of a medical doctor who could not believe that she was once diagnosed with a deadly disease, but now there was no trace of the disease. He asked her for proof of the previous diagnosis, and she had to produce cards from the clinic where she had gone before receiving Christian Science treatment. 

Indeed, God is amazing, for as the Bible exhorts, “Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high.” (Psalms 113:5) - S.


Family Reunited Through Prayer 
It is with much gratitude and joy that l relate a recent healing l helped a friend with through reliance on God's care and love for all mankind. 

Last Monday a friend visited me, complaining that her husband had left her at her parent's house because our Zimbabwean culture says that the first baby must be born at the mother's parent's homestead (masungiro). She was left there while 7 months pregnant, and gave birth at her parents’ home, but the husband was nowhere to be found. The baby was now 3 months old, which meant her husband had been gone for almost 5 months. 

I prayed for her, knowing that all the good that God gives her, including her love, support, and supply, is hers for eternity. God is perfect, ever-present Love, forever filling His creation with completeness and goodness. As God's dear offspring, she and her husband must therefore reflect that divine oneness and inseparability. I reminded her that the Bible promises: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10) I told her, “Starting right now, deep in your heart, see your beloved husband as the expression of God, who is the source of all true being. Know that nothing is missing for either one of you because you were created to enjoy and express the fullness of God's goodness, which is more than enough.” 

l continued silently knowing that she and her husband couldn’t be hypnotized by a mortal sense of history, nor could any amount of human reasoning or material laws bind them to any sense of loss or unhappiness. God, Spirit, constantly maintains their satisfaction, oneness, purity, and peace. I also reminded her that “man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.” (S&H 266:14-15) 

As she left, I thought of the line in the Christian Science textbook, “Man is, and forever has been, God’s reflection.” (471:17-18) Later that same day she received a call from her husband, asking for forgiveness and urging her to pack her belongings to come back to their matrimonial home. I can't describe in words the supreme love and joy she expressed to me, as she told me that all was well. 

l am so grateful to God for what He showed me in that healing. I have truly been witness to God's unfailing law and His loving care, which is always present for us all. - C.


Healing of Babies and of Family Discord 
After being treated with hatred and opposition by his dad for most of his life, a friend asked me if this situation could be healed through Christian Science. I told him that since God is all good and is the only power, any situation that is not good could be proven to be unreal. He liked this way of thinking and went on to explain that his baby twins were struggling with a disease which was thought to be incurable. He believed that his father's hatred and opposition might be a factor in his children's suffering and in other recent misfortunes that had befallen him and his family. It was obvious he was afraid of his dad. 

Appealing to his reason, I explained how ignorance of the spiritual facts of being and of his divine rights could seem to subject him to suffering, while knowledge of the truth, as Jesus promised, would make him free. Understanding that God and man (divine Cause and effect) are one in being, I knew that no one could be deceived into believing in a life or power separate from God. I reminded him of Christ Jesus’ promise, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19) I also shared with him St. Paul’s declaration that, “Now is the day of salvation,” (II Cor. 6:2) which helped him to realize that harmony and freedom are not conditions of the future but of this present moment. Whilst we were talking over these Christian truths, I could see the fear start to disappear from his face.

After obtaining his permission to pray for him, I began my treatment from the standpoint indicated in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy on 275:6-8, “The starting-point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is All-in-all, and that there is no other might nor Mind, -- that God is Love, and therefore He is divine Principle.” Because God is the only Principle or parent of man, I knew it to be impossible for my friend to be affected by anything other than the love and support of his Father-Mother God. The only real qualities of fatherhood are those that divine Principle, Love, expresses through man. So nothing but harmony can flow between our divine Father-Mother and His children, or between parents and their children and grandchildren. Recognizing this absolute truth through my prayer, I knew that all was well with my friend and his family.

In a few days’ time he called to tell me about a wonderful healing. His babies had fully recovered and his dad had just warmly invited him home after so many years of alienation! They have been a happy family ever since.

“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.” (Ps. 48:1) - C. 
 


Water Supply Assured Through Prayer
I have grown enough spiritually through my prayerful study of Christian Science to keep my thoughts peaceful even when surrounded by adversity. This spiritual equipoise became more evident recently when our borehole (water well) ran out of water and we had to buy the precious resource from bulk water suppliers. 

Since our property is at the bottom of a very steep unpaved hill, it can only be accessed by well-maintained vehicles. As a result, there are only a few suppliers who were willing to come down the slope. Of the several suppliers I was able to try, all of them experienced various troubles with their water delivery vehicles and had to quit servicing my home; one even tried to charge me double the normal rate! It seemed that we had run out of options. 

But thanks to the teachings of Christian Science and the spirit of the Comforter, this adversity had no effect either on me or on my children. Being spiritual is very liberating. The Bible advises, “I am persuaded, that neither ... things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 8:38,39)  And Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health, “...to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good.” (494:10) Knowing this, I wasn't fazed by the attitude of the suppliers, or even upset by their lack of response. I knew instead that God had another plan for us because He is All-in-all and always meets His children’s needs. 

For two days we were unsure as to how we were to get water once our tank ran dry. But I was calmly assured of God’s provision for us and I knew that an answer would come. At the end of the second day, a neighbor whom I had never seen before paid a call on me. During her visit, she mentioned that her borehole is close to our property. At that point, I told her about our water situation and she graciously offered to help us. She encouraged us to connect a hosepipe to her water supply and in no time we had all the water we needed, even enough to water our garden! 

Clearly, our God knows our needs and He supplies them! I am enriched by my study of Christian Science, and through it I have had so many financial and economic breakthroughs. I have come to the conclusion that “Evil is not supreme; good is not helpless; nor are the so-called laws of matter primary, and the law of Spirit secondary.” (S&H 207:10-13) - M. 


Overdue Birth Complications Healed
A friend asked me if I would pray for his wife as he was extremely worried about her condition. She was expecting their child, and it was feared that the baby would not make it since there did not appear to be any sign of him being alive. Further, there had been medical opinions that the delivery would present grave complications for the mother as well. With that, I asked for the wife’s permission to receive Christian Science prayerful treatment, and she was grateful for the spiritual support.

Remembering that God is All and defines all that is made according to His perfection and law, I was reminded of a powerful verse from the Bible, “Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb?” (Isa. 66:9) I began my prayer with a great truth learnt in Christian Science that man is purely spiritual and is made in the image and likeness of God, who is Life itself.  

My prayer continued on to overturn the material beliefs about the case with spiritual facts. There had been medical opinions that her overdue pregnancy would cause harm to both mother and baby. But in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, “time” is defined as “Mortal measurements; limits, in which are summed up all human acts, thoughts, beliefs, opinions, knowledge; matter; error;…” (595:17-19) So in reality, no such mortal limits, errors or opinions about time could ever overrule the eternal spiritual truth that God governs every aspect of their existence in perfect harmony. As divine reflections of that immortal Life, the baby and his mother had always been protected by God’s laws of health and well-being. I finished my prayer with the assurance that because God, Life, is All-in-all, mother and child could feel only the vitality, confidence and comfort of His harmonious government at every moment. 

Two days later the news came that a healthy baby was born and that his mother too, was in perfect health. Glory to God! - Y. 


Healing of Chronic Illness
When a neighbour asked me to pray for him, I could clearly see that he was terribly afraid of death. I learnt that he had been suffering for months with a chronic illness and he never got any relief from other systems. But a friend had recently told him of how his father had gotten a healing through Christian Science. Knowing that I was a Christian Scientist, this neighbour asked me for help. 

To remove his fear, I silently assured him in prayer that he was well and knew it was true, for his true identity was “hid with Christ in God” (Col. 3:3), in the divine reality of perfect God and perfect man, where death doesn't have power. I took to heart Mrs Eddy’s counsel, “Blot out the images of mortal thought and its beliefs in sickness and sin. Then, when thou art delivered to the judgment of Truth, Christ, the judge will say, 'Thou art whole!'” (S&H 391:3) So I refused to accept as real “the false witnesses” (the physical symptoms) which had risen up against my neighbour and seemed “to breathe out cruelty.” (See Ps. 27:12)  

I explained to him that Mind, God, is the only medicine in Christian Science. He immediately put aside all forms of medication, which to me was a clear sign of receptivity. I assured him that he was already starting to heal, knowing very well that he had never lost the health that his Maker expresses in him.

The next day he told me he felt a huge relief but still needed more help. I defended my Christian Science treatment (my prayer for him) by knowing that the absolute, divine truth in my prayer was of God, and Jesus promised that “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32) When I visited him again the following day while he was with his friends, the friends looked at me and said with so much appreciation and surprise, “Mwari akanaka!” [God is good!] This same neighbour felt completely free by then and had just been able to do some running, even though a few days before he could only walk with great pain. His illness was over and it has not returned. God is all-good, always! -T.


Suicide by Poisoning Reversed
I was informed about a dying friend who desperately needed prayerful Christian Science treatment. After having a fight in his family, he was made to think that taking his life was the only solution, and he swallowed a large quantity of poison. According to the witnesses at the scene, it was thought that my friend should die 10 times over with that amount of poison in his stomach. By the time I was called, even medical assistance had left him to die and various ominous symptoms, including skin color changes and bodily sores, had already started appearing. 

Fortified by the truth in Christian Science that God is man’s Life and that man reflects this Life eternally, I immediately started to argue in prayer against the false evidence of a material sense of life. Remembering the ever-active, omnipotent government of God over all His ideas, I thought of this statement from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, “All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all.” (468:10-11) Drawing on this absolute truth that God and His image and likeness form the entirety of being, I could stand firm in my prayer on the fact that my friend couldn’t possibly be harmed by a belief in poisonous matter. He couldn’t know or experience anything outside the wonderful eternal fact of perfect God and His perfect idea, man, in which God keeps His children entirely safe and well at all times. This treatment of error’s claims with the spiritual truth enabled me to completely repudiate the seemingly inevitable conclusions of chemistry and biology for my friend and prayerfully help him be at peace on earth with the Lord. (See Ps. 103:2-4) 

I was told that immediately after I began praying, my friend started improving and in a few days’ time, he was back to a normal life to the great surprise of everyone there. I am so very grateful for the final revelation of truth established in Science and Health which reveals the essence of the Bible: the allness of our God, never separated from His divine idea, man. - H.


Healed of Various Pains
Since the age of 20 I had never had a harmonious life due to various pains. These pains affected my whole body.


In trying to find solutions for the restoration of sound health, I came across Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The chapter on Prayer opened my thoughts for a thorough reading of the Christian Science textbook and also of the Bible. I came to know that the divine Principle, God, is all-knowing. He knows all our needs and supplies them. He is all-good, all Love, and only knows good for all of His creation. 

What I was reading in the Bible and the Christian Science textbook urged me to start putting into practice what little faith I had in God and Christ Jesus. This I did immediately, always referring to Genesis 1:26, 31 and Isaiah 41:10: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” I also constantly worked with Psalms 91. Very quickly, Christian Science proved to me that God is Love. This Love soothed my heart and peace was restored.  

All pains disappeared and my body is no longer discordant. John 8:32 ("Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.") made me aware that I should never allow myself to be a victim of error. The Christ-power that works in all of us enables us to know ourselves as God knows us and to be healed by Him. I am so grateful for this relief brought to me by the Word of God. - K. 


Protection from Harm During Automobile Accident 
In December of 2019, I experienced a very dramatic example of God’s protection and the vital importance of doing my daily work in Christian Science.

 
At around 5:00 in the evening on New Year’s Eve, I heard someone telling me that the car that I had just been driving had been involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle and that the other passengers and I were being taken to hospital. I have absolutely no recollection of that accident, even to this day. I can only recall that we were approaching the city of Chegutu and that the traffic was heavy, so I was being especially cautious with the driving. Afterward, I learnt that the car I had been driving was a total wreck.  

At hospital, all of us were x-rayed and examined. Two of the passengers were badly hurt and hospitalized and three were bandaged and released. Tragically, one passed on during the night. I was brokenhearted by that news and grieved for her family. But I had to insist in prayer that this woman could not lose her Life, God, and that He was still lovingly caring for her. Amazingly, I came out of this horrendous accident with nothing broken, no bleeding, and with only a slight bruise on my thumb. I am convinced that it was my daily study and practice of Christian Science that played the biggest role in protecting all of us as much as we were protected and in delivering me from any worse injuries. Of our deliverance, I can only recount Mary's words to Elizabeth, "For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.” (Luke 1:49) 

Part of my daily affirmations in Christian Science is that God and man are inseparable. I have learnt that, in reality, for something to happen to man, it would have to happen to God first because "in him we live, and move, and have our being.” (Acts 17:28)  But Science and Health tells us, "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony." (S&H 424:5) Following these instructions helps us to prevent and avoid accidents. Mrs. Eddy also advises us to “…keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them….Good thoughts are an impervious armor; clad therewith you are completely shielded from the attacks of error of every sort.” (My. 210:2) 

This accident was quite a traumatic event. I am so very grateful that my life and the lives of most of my friends were spared. But through this incident I have come to understand more fully that our lives really are "hid with Christ in God.” (Col 3:3) I now can see clearly that daily prayers for ourselves are what deliver us from destruction. Where we stand in general in our thinking determines how we will fare in our lives. Thank God for Christian Science!

Flu Healed Through Prayer 
A few days ago, I suffered from some aggressive flu symptoms and I ended up fearing that perhaps I had become a victim of the current world pandemic. 

On the second day, I read verses from the Bible which stated that God made man in His image and likeness and gave him dominion over all the works of His hands. (Ps. 8:4-6) I realized as I studied that I am the divine idea of God, (which also includes everyone else as the image and likeness of God) and have been given His powerful authority and dominion over every suggestion of evil. I realized too, that as the image of Spirit, God, I couldn’t have anything that God doesn’t have, or know anything that He doesn’t know, and neither could anyone else. I affirmed in prayer that Spirit, God, was my Life and that nothing else could ever attach itself to my being. 

That night, I was truly inspired by reading in my Bible, "…whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it." (Eccl. 3:14)  After studying that scripture I was able to sleep quite peacefully. The following morning, I woke up completely healed without the slightest sign of pain. I thank God for this proof of His ever-present care. - C. 


Son Healed of Drug Addiction 
"And Love is reflected in love." This special quote from the spiritual sense of the Lord's Prayer that appears in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by our beloved Leader Mary Baker Eddy (p. 17:7), has been proven to me in every way, physically, mentally, and emotionally, for myself as well as with friends and family members. 

My son had been taking drugs since 2016, and for me l began to hate him since that day. I cut off all communication with him and began to convince myself that he no longer existed. One week we had a Christian Science Bible Lesson-Sermon on Everlasting Punishment. It helped me a lot to start seeing my son as the true image of God. l prayed for God's guidance and a verse from the Bible came to thought from James 1:17 which states; "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." This cleared my mind. l then felt anger and hatred disappearing towards my son as I saw God’s goodness embracing him. l realized that regretting what had happened previously was a ghost from the past and only an illusion trying to steal my present joy. As it states in Science and Health, "The real man is spiritual and immortal, but the mortal and imperfect so-called 'children of men' are counterfeits from the beginning, to be laid aside for the pure reality." (409:20-23)  From this l began to see this son of God as perfect and expressing the righteousness that belongs to him as God's child. 

A few days later, even though we hadn't spoken to each other for a very long time, l received a call from this son, begging to come home, but he didn't have bus fare. I paid his bus fare and continued affirming that drugs were not created by God and had no life or power, so they couldn't be any part of my son's life. When he arrived he confessed that he had quit using drugs. l realized how important it was to continue seeing him from a spiritual perspective. l gave him Bible verses to read whenever the temptation of using drugs visited him. He especially liked Psalms 27:1-5 and Psalms 91. 

I really thank God for this healing, since it has resulted in much more peace and harmony in our daily lives. I am also so grateful that my son and I now have a harmonious loving relationship. Praise God! - T. 
 

Dog’s Life Restored
I went to put food out for the four dogs we have. As I went to get the dog food containers, I saw one of the oldest of the dogs on the ground having a seizure. I was so surprised that I wasn't able to think anything as the dog went silent and still. I asked my dad if the dog had passed and he answered that it was time, for it was really old.
 
Because I had to put food out for the dogs, I collected containers and moved from that spot, leaving the dog lying still and looking lifeless. On my way to go fill up the containers I just found myself asking God, "God, is this dog really gone?  Has it breathed its last breath?” I immediately corrected myself, knowing such a question was not from the one Mind, God. In Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes, "Controlled by the divine intelligence, man is harmonious and eternal." (184:16-17) and on p. 46, she writes, "The Master said plainly that physique was not Spirit." Then a thought came to me firmly: "This picture is mortal mind's sense testimony and I cannot accept mortal mind's testimony!” So in prayer I fully rejected the picture of a dead dog and I went on to get the food and took it back to the dogs where the incident had occurred.
 
As I looked on the spot where the presumably dead dog had been lying, there was nothing lifeless in the picture at all! The dog was now standing there full of life and it began to run around like nothing had happened. I checked and all four dogs were lively and happily eating. I screamed with joy to have witnessed the dog restored back to life so instantaneously!

I am deeply grateful for God’s love and Christian Science. - B.


Covid Symptoms Healed
To the senses it looked like my brother-in-law was dying of the “pandemic” and every material remedy was tried to help him but had failed. Because he was staying in a place believed to be the hotspot of this disease, everyone was worried that he wouldn’t make it. When he finally asked for a Christian Science treatment, I could see that fear was mastering his thoughts about himself. 

I immediately knew, as Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, states in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, "Fear is the fountain of sickness, and you master fear ... through divine Mind; hence it is through divine Mind that you overcome disease.” (S&H 391:32-2) This gave me the spiritual clarity to be conscious of the healing truth used by Christ Jesus, and set forth in our textbook in these words, “Knowing that Soul and its attributes were forever manifested through man, the Master healed the sick…thus bringing to light the scientific action of the divine Mind on human minds and bodies and giving a better understanding of Soul and salvation.” (S&H 210:11-16) Recognizing my brother-in-law’s true identity as the perfect reflection of God, including all the health, strength and vitality bestowed upon him by his Creator, I was convinced that these qualities were all that he could ever truly feel, know and experience.   

Later that day, he told me that he had received great relief from the pain and symptoms of illness. By the next day he had completely recovered, and was very grateful for Christian Science which he had, up to just a couple of months ago, believed to be satanic! It was so nice to help this man -- through signs following (healing) -- be able to fulfill the scripture, “Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Ps. 107:15) 
- W. 


Healing of Chronic Side Pain
After taking up the study of the Bible, Science and Health and other Christian Science materials, I learnt how very important it is to pray every day for myself and for the rest of the world. 

In 2016, when I was doing my Ordinary level school studies, I suffered severely from side pains. Despite praying for myself for two months, I didn’t experience relief from the pain. I ended up thinking that perhaps the pain had been caused by lack of physical exercise. I started doing some exercises every day but the pain persisted. 

My friends and other people advised me to get help from local prophets but I refused because I regarded them as fake. I decided to go to a Christian Science practitioner for help. When I told him for how long I had suffered from side pains he laughed in a friendly way and said, ”It doesn’t matter how long an error has been believed. There is no special effort required to remove 6 or 13,000 from the sum of 2+2. When you are reminded of the rules of addition, then you can quickly realize that the answer to that sum is, and always has been, 4. You are a child of God and very precious in His sight and cannot be under the influence of anything else other than the love of God.” 

I felt so relieved! The belief that something wrong was going on in my body just left me and I was healed instantly. The practitioner then gave me some Bible verses for further study: Jeremiah 32:27 and Romans 8:11. I found these verses very reassuring, and the light I got from studying them has made my healing permanent. 

I thank God for this proof of His grace and love. - C.


Healing of Suicidal Despair
Last week I heard of a neighbor who attempted to commit suicide due to marital problems. I visited her and asked for permission to pray for her, and she agreed.


I started praying for the family, knowing that God's love is within the family and is always there. We read and discussed Psalm 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." I told her to cast all her anxiety on Him since He cares for you, and He created you and your family in His image and likeness. He truly loves all of you so much. 

After the discussion, she smiled broadly as tears streamed down her face. I asked her for the reason for crying. She told me that no one had ever had time to listen to her problems as l did that day. Romans 8:38-39 came to mind and I read it to her: "For l am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” l told her to see everyone at home as perfect. I reminded her of how Jesus healed: "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick.” (S&H 476:32-4) 

She thanked me so much and told me she was relieved and no more thoughts of committing suicide were in her mind. 

This experience taught me more concretely that as we humbly and deeply turn to God in prayer, we can expect to find answers and healing for any situation. - M.
