I was doing my hair one night, when suddenly my neck felt funny, and it seemed like I might have hurt it. At first I thought it was just a cramp, but as the night went on I felt more and more pain. 

We went out for the evening, and when we got home, I thought I would try a heat pack on my neck. But that didn’t help. I went to bed, but slept very badly. When I woke up, I couldn’t move my neck or shoulders at all.


But then I remembered what I’ve learned in the Christian Science Sunday School about how we can pray and be healed. I decided to pray about my neck.

While I was in the shower, I prayed by reminding myself that I am made in God’s spiritual image and likeness. This means that since God couldn’t have any soreness, I couldn’t have a sore neck. God is perfect, and I affirmed that I am also perfect in every way. Thinking like this made me feel peaceful.

Two minutes after I got out of the shower, the pain was completely gone, and I could move my neck and shoulders normally.

I have learned that every thought counts, and when I hold my thought close to God, who is good, painful situations fade away.
