Testimonies from Sunday School Students   1 comment

Students from the Christian Science Sunday School in Canberra share ways they have resolved physical problems through prayer:

Lessons on the Netball Court

I play netball for a local team.  During a recent game I was playing down at the defense end.  At one point in the game I caught the ball.  The opposition player was also running for the ball and she didn’t stop in time.  She fell hard into my knee which twisted inwards.  It really hurt.  However, I kept going because I knew if I went off, we wouldn’t have a replacement for me.  I was in quite a bit of pain so I held to the truth, that I had learned in Sunday School, that I was spiritual and therefore couldn’t be hurt.  I relaxed when I held to this idea. Quickly the pain left and I played the rest of the game without any problems.  This shows how instant God’s love is.

Stomach Ache Gone

Last weekend I had to play in a soccer game.  Part way through the game I got a really bad stomach ache.  In Sunday School I’ve learned to watch my thinking, so I thought to myself that there is no such thing as pain because God is by my side forever and always and He made me perfect.  So, I just kept playing.  The pain went away straight away and I played really well.

After the soccer game I went to my friend’s house and then the pain started again.  I thought of reasons why I might have a pain but I knew God didn’t make pain so there was no reason for it.  I sat quietly and prayed again.  That was the end of the pain.

Praying for My Baby Sister

I am only 3 years old, so my mum and aunty are helping me to write my story.

I have been Skyping into Sunday School for a few weeks now.  My teacher has been teaching me that God is Love and that God always keeps us safe.  She is also teaching me some fun songs like the Circle of Love.  My favourite game is the one where we say, ‘No’ to bad thoughts and ‘Yes’ to good thoughts.  I use this at home now when I am tempted to be naughty.

The other day I was in the car with my little sister and my mum.  My sister started to cry really loudly.  She had a sore tummy and she wanted Mummy, but Mummy was driving so I leaned over and held her hand.  I told her that she was safe because God loved her.  My Sunday School teacher taught me that God loves everyone and keeps them safe.  Straight away she stopped crying and was happy.

Now I use what my teacher is teaching me whenever my sister is crying.  Sometimes I skip around her singing the Circle of Love song and sometimes I hold her hand and sing the Meghan song that my teacher taught me.  It goes like this:

Hello Meghan, Hello Meghan

Who are you?  Who are you?

You are God’s reflection

Showing His perfection.

God loves you, God loves you.

When I do these things she always stops crying.  This is how I know that God loves us.  I love learning about God in Sunday School.
