BROKEN ARM SET THROUGH PRAYER
My son was nine years old and had two friends spending the night for a sleepover one weekend. At 11pm on a Saturday night, I was upstairs washing my face and heard one of his friends scream, “Come quick, Gary just broke his arm!” I dried off my face and went downstairs to find a young boy sitting on the floor holding his arm between his elbow and his wrist.
I asked him to show me his arm. When he did, the picture of two bones pointing in opposite directions tried to alarm me, but I’ve learned how to pray about all things in Christian Science so I started to pray instead of succumbing to fear.
In Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy states that students of Christian Science may leave the setting of bones to physicians. [See page 401.] My son was very scared and wanted to go to the hospital, so I took him.
