Right thoughts are always present because they come from God, who is ever present, and we, as His offspring, are always capable of receiving them. But we also need to be alert to the beliefs that might come on the heels of these thoughts, suggesting that evil is real or powerful, injury or sickness is incurable, or a healing is reversible.

Why would I ever allow an untrue view of a loved family member—of anyone, for that matter—to linger in my thought? I realized that as the expression of divine Life, my dad’s true selfhood had never been subject to matter or mortality, but had always reflected the Life that is eternal Spirit.

What the heart wants

To be effective, prayer needs to be God centered, not “me” centered. Of course God meets our practical needs. The Bible tells us that God loves us, and He does. We see our needs met as we grow in our love for both God and man and act on that love.
