Can CHILDREN
help to heal the world?

Children do healing work very easily as they understand that they can dismiss evil intentions when they crop up. 

Children often show how their trust of God can draw others even adults into divine Love’s care. It’s intuitive. Once children know Bible stories that illustrate the power of God,  they apply it to other things, for their own benefit.  they can see how it’s impossible for an all good God to create people who can get sick and this ray of the light of Truth is felt by others and cures them.

There’s the instance of healing [see Journal no. 16], when a 7 year old told her Sunday School teacher who was sitting with her head in her hands, "God loves you”!

Bounding off, she felt it was sorted and expected everything to be taken care of. Carol’s headache vanished immediately. So by turning to God, children relate to Jesus’ healing gift and find that their faith can heal.

Mary Baker Eddy healed when she was a child; it was well known that she had a healing thought and people came to her and even brought their animals to be healed by her too. 

When children have been taught that God is all-in-all, they see how to use the scientific statement of being for every emergency. 

The scientific statement of being gives them a feeling of safety and dominion.

Question. — What is the scientific statement of being?

Answer. — There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.

— Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 468: 8-15

The scientific statement of being gives them a feeling of safety and dominion.

Grown ups tend to bring fear to situations which aggravate conditions. There was a Grandmother in the tropics, who realised this when she saw her granddaughter sitting on a step eating out of cereal bowl which had attracted the attention of a snake. It slid up and sipped out of the bowl. The child was fascinated but loving her food she told it not to be greedy. "One for you and one for me” she instructed and the snake waited while she had some too. When the bowl was empty the snake merely slid back under the house and the grandmother rejoiced in the child’s simple knowledge of divine Love of the ability to share which was more powerful than thoughts of incomparability and consequent danger.

So if children can adore God’s goodness it can take care of so many things. Their understanding of the innate integrity of God’s universe allows that integrity have free reign.
