Our son came home from a school trip to Costa Rica with a very aggressive skin condition on his face. It began to spread to other areas of his body, and I prayed diligently with the support of a Christian Science practitioner, to overcome the fears that were coming to me and to our son. I stayed by our son’s side day and night, reading to him and encouraging him with the truths that came to my thought. In a few days we both felt free from fear, but the condition seemed to continue to spread.
The school nurse contacted us, and informed us that the Health Department had been brought in, because a couple of other children were experiencing the same thing. One family visited a medical clinic, and the doctors said that it was not contagious, which satisfied the Health Department.
As we continued to pray, we tackled some of our son’s character issues that concerned me, such as his unwillingness to help out when asked, the tendency to procrastinate, and disobedience. These were impositions on a young man who is very intelligent, perceptive, loving, and thoughtful, and I wanted to see through the belief that man is made up of right and wrong, good and evil.
One day, our son said to me, “Mom, I’m not sure why I wasn’t helping you when you asked, but now I will help you anytime you ask.” This has proven to be the case. He is always ready to help, has become more organized, takes initiative in doing his work on time and is more responsible and much happier.
From then on the skin condition stopped spreading and gradually faded. We no longer needed to use bandages. He returned to school and finished the year with very good grades and compliments from his teachers about his helpful and confident nature. It goes without saying that I am very grateful for this healing which included the transformation in our son’s character.
