Healing prayer narrative – alcoholism wiped out without a trace!

This blog’s Wednesday focus is on what I have called “healing prayer narratives”. Today’s blog highlights a vivid and complete cure of alcoholism. The album on the left is called “Welcome to my Nightmare”, and at one point alcoholism was a nightmare being experienced by rock star Alice Cooper.  

What awoke him from that? The actual healing is about halfway through the YouTube video below (at 2mins 12secs) but the whole video is a heartening, heartfelt expression of a Christian lifestyle that lives its faith without judging others.

To hear a global internet version of local Wednesday meetings in Christian Science churches featuring spontaneously shared “experiences, testimonies, and remarks on Christian Science”, you can listen live at 7pm (UK time) – or for 24 hours afterwards – to The Wednesday Online Testimony Meeting Broadcast of The Mother Church in Boston, Massachusetts.

I write on spirituality and health for a diversity of online media outlets, from my perspective as a Christian Science practitioner. I have been published by the Independent, the Washington Post, the Guardian, E-Hospice, MindBodyGreen and The Christian Science Monitor and I post regularly on the Huffington Post UK and BuzzFeed. In addition to writing and broadcast appearances I enjoy engaging with journalists, academics, health professionals and government officials about the possibilities for improving health outcomes through a greater emphasis on spirituality in healthcare and social care. I've also greatly valued the many opportunities I have had to travel globally for my church and to meet people around the world. My wife Jenny and I spent 10 years in Boston, USA, before returning to London in 2002, to take on a role as the media and legislative liaison for Christian Science in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. I studied at the University of Surrey earning a BSc Hons Degree in Modern Mathematics before the impact of spirituality on health caught my attention and re-shaped my career.

    Thanks, Jodi – it’s good to know that complete freedom is a achievable goal. I have never owned an Alice Cooper album, but the two big hits I remember when I was growing up were “School’s Out” and “Elected”. His is a kind of rock vaudeville act with a touch of teen rebellion thrown in for good measure…! :)

    Wow, fantastic to know that alcoholism can be healed vs. cured. Not having to live under the claim that every AA meeting offers – that you will always be an alcoholic.

    Thanks for bring us this.

Let me know what you think!
