Christian Science & the power of healing prayer
Prayer opens thought, and problems and challenges can be overcome by acknowledging the presence and power of God. Many people feel deeply about the Holy Bible and its teachings, and use it as a basis for prayer. Christian Scientists also turn to Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. It's a companion to the Bible that helps us understand more about our relationship to God. Many people have been healed simply by reading this book, and you will hear it frequently referenced.
Healings of all kinds are a testimony to the effectiveness of God’s laws as applied in Jesus’ healing examples and Christian Science. We hope that the healing ideas shared in the following testimonies will help you find healing in your life!
You are also welcome to come to testimonial meetings at Christian Science churches to and hear about healings others have experienced. Find a church

God can protect and heal us if our thoughts are open to prayer and healing. "In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me."

People can seem to be "addicted" to substances like drugs, alcohol and pills, and types of behavior such as physical and mental abuse. One church member shares his healing of alcoholism, and another no longer relies on pills. "Spiritual perception brings out the possibilities of being, destroys reliance on aught but God, and so makes man the image of his Maker in deed and in truth." Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
Animals can respond to prayer just like people do! "God is the Life, or intelligence, which forms and preserves the individuality and identity of animals as well as of men." Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. See examples of horse diseases, horse snake bite, cancer in dogs, and dog poisoning healed through spiritual prayer.

Addressing mental illness through prayer and Christian Science results in change in thought.

Acts 10:38 Read how one woman was healed of chronic depression.

Mary Baker Eddy's Miscellaneous Writings
God sends his angels to protect and warn us of danger. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Psalm 91:11 Readers share instances of protection in fire storms, and a pilot tells about air safety. God is your co-pilot!
