The thought of breast cancer permeated my thought–morning and night. I had decided that I would not have the lump in my breast diagnosed by a doctor, but would rely totally on my communication with God. This proved to be more difficult than one can imagine! There were days that I reached for the phone to call a physician, but a still, small inward voice stopped me. “Rely on me just a little longer.” One key factor that was very helpful in seeking to bring about a healing, was recognizing that disease is not something God created. It is man-made, and is caused by erroneous thinking. I prayed fervently to God to reveal to me what needed to be corrected in my thinking. When anger, character flaws, greed, prejudice or any evil thoughts were revealed to me, I tried to correct them. In the beginning, I thought of the lump in my breast “all of the time.” About the only time that I did not think of it, was when I was in front of a class teaching music. Daily study of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker, inspired me to trust God to heal “all thy diseases” and I began to think less and less about cancer, and more and more of pleasing God–expressing humility, forgiveness, joy, justice, purity and dominion over any other erroneous living and thinking.
After five years the fear left me, and the lump in my breast became smaller and smaller until it disappeared. Over thirty-eight years, I have been healed of numerous diseases from colds to blindness. So how do I answer the question Is breast cancer too powerful for prayer? With an emphatic No!
