Are you looking for healing?

You will discover that Christian Science is a practical Bible-based way to heal every-day problems. Healing is an important part of this worldwide Christian religion and the focus of this website. We all need something we can hold onto that uplifts and heals us even on the darkest of days. 

You are invited to watch our welcome video and explore our website to learn more about healing prayer.

Prayer that Heals is hosted by the Southern California Christian Science Churches. We are dedicated to serving members and website visitors by offering online healing resources and inspiration. Although most of the churches and reading rooms in SoCal are currently closed, many church services are available online and/or via phone. We strive to follow health guidelines and safety because we care about you! 


Healing thoughts for today

Saturday, July 24, 2021                                

“Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matt 4:17 KJV

“Self-renunciation of all that constitutes a so-called material man, and the acknowledgment and achievement of his spiritual identity as the child of God, is Science that opens the very flood-gates of heaven; whence good flows into every avenue of being, cleansing mortals of all uncleanness, destroying all suffering, and demonstrating the true image and likeness. There is no other way under heaven whereby we can be saved, and man be clothed with might, majesty, and immortality.” Mary Baker Eddy

God loves you, and you are never separated from Him.
