Does prayer help and heal?

Yes! Christian Science can also be thought of as "the science of Christianity" — meaning that it is the demonstrable, repeatable practice of God's laws as shown by Christ Jesus and further promoted by Mary Baker Eddy, the discover and founder of Christian Science.

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.
