Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Healed
T. D., Iowa
My mother had been diagnosed by a doctor with C.O.P.D. (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). She is not a Christian Scientist, and I was very concerned about her health so I decided to call a practitioner for help. The practitioner told me it was an unselfish motive to want to help my mother and she gave me this statement from Science and Health to work with “Whatever holds human thought in line with unselfed love, receives directly the divine power.” Also , “…where prayers are mental , all may avail themselves of God as ‘a very present help in trouble.’” She told me to work with the Scientific Statement of Being by Mrs. Eddy as well.
I was very grateful when my mother soon expressed an interest in reading the Plainfield Lesson, and then a willingness to call the practitioner herself for help.
Shortly after speaking with the practitioner, my mother’s long time habit of smoking was completely healed. She stopped needing the apparatus she had been using to help her breathe, as well as the medication she had been taking. All the symptoms have abated and she is now a well woman.
I am very grateful for this healing. I now feel a strong desire to dedicate myself more wholly to the cause of Christian Science and to become more involved with the activities of this church. Thank God for Mary Baker Eddy and for our church, Independent!
