Are prayer and healing for you?

If you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you’re not even sure what you think about God, can you still pray and be healed?

Our speaker,  Nate Frederick,  says  …

“Yes. Because prayer and healing are natural to us, and I say this as one who didn’t even grow up in a religious household.

Nate continues …

But what I’ve discovered as I’ve studied Christian Science is that a willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect—for anyone.

Like in the case of an inmate I worked with. As I shared the basics of Christian Science with him, he said it all sounded great but he was just a bad person. He seemed pretty convinced that healing wasn’t for him. But as we talked about the fact that he wasn’t defined by his past, but by God, his source, who is completely good, I could tell his thought about himself was changing.

And then he wanted more. So he took a copy of the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, back to his cell and started to dive into these books. Six or seven weeks later, I ran into him again and he told me that he’d been healed of a serious illness —just from studying the Bible and Science and Health. His study helped him grasp God and his life in a new way and his disease was cured.

In my lecture, I’ll share more about the fundamentals of effective prayer, as I’ve learned from studying Christian Science, as well as how healing is truly possible for everyone.

About Nate Frederick

Christian Science Lecturer, Nate Frederick, C.S.

Nate is a practitioner of Christian Science healing and in his talk, he will share more about the fundamentals of effective prayer, as he has learned from studying Christian Science, as well as how healing is truly possible for everyone.

Experiencing first-hand the healing power of Love is Nate Frederick’s favorite thing.  It’s what makes him tick. Nate studied perennial religion at Hampshire College where he was introduced to Christian Science healing.  Although he was enamored with the academic exploration of spirituality, what he truly desired most was to practice spirituality in a tangible way — he wanted to experience God and heal others.

After traveling and hiking extensively in the Himalayas, Nate came to Boston in 2008 to work for the headquarters of the Christian Science church, in Boston.  Since then, he has served in many capacities, including launching and producing spiritual and musical podcasts. Nate has shared the Christian Science at jails, rehab centers and interfaith events.  He’s also been widely involved in composing, producing and performing music.

In summary, Nate affirms:

“Without comparison, my greatest love, my greatest joy— my mission — is to transform lives and heal the sick through Christianly Scientific prayer.”
