Ernest prayer in 100 degree weather

Drought conditions

and earnest prayer

As I prayed, the sky became overcast and it began to rain.

I have had many healings through the study of Christian Science, and although they included gaining freedom from severe physical challenges, the real healing was in the spiritualization of thought - in attaining the higher understanding that God is infinite Mind and governs the universe in perfect harmony. Knowing this, I reasoned that drought was no more real than any sickness I had dealt with. If all that is real is Mind’s creation, then harmony has to be universal.
