Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, …  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.  (The Bible – Proverbs 3: 5, 6, 8)

Stand porter at the door of thought.  Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously. (Science and Health p392)

A Quick Recovery from Pneumonia   Leave a comment

This article, A Quick Recovery from Pneumonia, is by a member of the Christian Science Church in Canberra.   It describes a quick healing of pneumonia-like symptoms.

Last year quite suddenly I began to feel ill.  Within a day I was laboring to breathe and felt dangerously ill.  Some years back I had similarly fallen ill and to comply with work regulations was assessed by a doctor.  The diagnosis at this previous time was pneumonia so I was fairly certain that this time, although I did not consult a doctor, I was also presenting with pneumonia symptoms.

I was brought up in Christian Science and have witnessed many healings so I felt confident in relying on prayer again for this.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy was my guide in steadying my thoughts.  On page 393 she writes:

Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good.  God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man.

So I held fast to this and the knowledge that I was made in ‘the image and likeness of God’ (Genesis 1: 26, 27) and this settled my thinking.  By the next morning I was breathing easily but I still felt extremely unwell.  At this point I thought it was wise to contact a friend and ask her to pray with me.  This friend expressed such love and tenderness – I just felt enveloped in love.  Within a couple of hours the temperature was gone and I was feeling well enough to get up.  That night I ate dinner with the family and the next morning I was at my usual post as Superintendent of the Sunday School.  This was the end of this condition.

For this, the previous healing of pneumonia, and many other healings through prayer and spiritualisation of thought I am very grateful.  Christian Science is teaching me, as I meet such challenges, that we really do have dominion and that God is ‘a very present help in trouble’ (Psalm 46: 1).

No More Suffering from Allergies   Leave a comment

This article, No More Suffering from Allergies, is by Deborah who is a member of the Christian Science Church in Canberra.  She describes how she overcame severe allergic reactions through prayer alone.

Throughout my childhood and into my adult life I suffered terribly from allergies. There were many things in the environment I felt triggered extreme reactions—but probably the most devastating to me was my reaction to cats. As a child I owned a huge ginger cat called Timmy. I loved Timmy, but even to sit near him caused me hours of distress; to touch him meant that I was almost incapacitated … Read more

I Walked Out Healed   Leave a comment

In this remarkable testimony of healing, Phillip Hockley tells of his instantaneous healing of multiple debilitating health conditions.  Phillip is now a full-time Christian Science healer and international speaker sharing the laws that make spiritual healing accessible to everyone.

phillip-hockleyI had decided to take the vows of a monk.  I accepted that there might not be long left for me in this life.  I devoted my days to spiritual devotional meditations.  This gave me strength, deeper and deeper peace—this despite my grave physical condition.

I used to be a ski instructor and a successful businessman.  I had two small companies, organising skiing trips and summer schools.  It was a long way from there to being registered as physically handicapped.  In my own words, I was “a basket case.” …

Then in the spring of 2001 I saw a poster advertising a local lecture.  It was about a woman I’d never heard of—Mary Baker Eddy.  I couldn’t understand why the idea of it wouldn’t go away.  I had no connection to or interest in this lady.  And I had no desire to learn anything about her.  Not to mention that the venue of the lecture was hard for me to access as a handicapped person.  But the idea still would not leave me.  It kept going round and round in my mind.  So in the end I decided to go to the lecture.Read more

Discover God – Discover Health   Leave a comment

A Christian Science lecture by Stormy Falco

article.271029.large[1]In this hour-long lecture, Discover God – Discover Health, Stormy describes her recovery from a paralysing terminal illness.

When she had nowhere else to turn, Stormy turned to God in prayer – a God she did not know very well, whose existence she had often doubted and who now was the focus of her anger.

She studied the Bible and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and learned that God was Love; God did not send sickness.  As her understanding of God grew her health improved.  She learned that there were divine laws that sustained and maintained man.  As she learned to apply these laws she was restored to perfect health.

Stormy is now a full-time Christian Science healer and teacher.  She has travelled the world sharing what she has learned about spiritual healing.

Follow this link to listen to Stormy’s talk:  Discover God – Discover Health.

This lecture was given in the Clayton Community Centre in Melbourne and was sponsored by the Christian Science Church in Ringwood.
