‘No one understands me’

When a friend felt misunderstood, this author remembered her own experience praying about a similar issue. God’s assurance had been clear and comforting: She knows our heart.

Some of us have a lot going for us; some of us don’t. At least, that was what this author thought. Could prayer help her see herself in a new light?

The ultimate relationship

What can you do when relationships never seem to work out the way you want them to? This author shares his prayers about that question and how a shift to a more God-centric perspective blessed all his relationships—romantic and otherwise.

When you’re faced with a problem, do you “use” Christian Science to address it? This author explains how healing happens more readily when we understand that we aren’t “using” Christian Science to fix something.

Feeling annoyed?

Is annoyance something we just have to live with? One writer says, “no,” and shares the spiritual ideas that helped free her from it.
