Healing Prayer in Action – Practical Prayer

The Christian Science Pastor — The Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy  Mary Baker Eddy who discovered this Science of Christian healing wrote,   “The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus’ time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation.  Now, as then, these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural.  They are the sign of Immanuel, or “God with us,” — a divine influence ever present in human consciousness and repeating itself, coming now as was promised aforetime, ‘To preach deliverance to the captives [of sense], And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised.’ (Luke 4:18) 


Prayer that brings God’s divine love to bear in our lives today is strong and enduring and is truly practical prayer, just as in Jesus’ day.  It wipes out fear and it heals disease and pain.  See Compassion of Jesus.  Christian Science presents God’s healthcare plan for you and all His children.  These are the same laws of love that Jesus taught to his followers on the hills of Galilee and in fishing villages in Judea — the same laws of healing practiced for about 300 years in the Early Christian Church.   How is it practical?  Truly practical prayer can be put into effect anywhere and anytime and yields reliable results.    How does it work?  How does prayer heal?  Read more.


“I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord;”  so says the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 30, verse 17.
