As a little child, the writer was taught to pray, and many times were her childish prayers answered, as well as those of her maturer years. There came later an hour of extreme trial, when she turned to God in prayer, outlining her request, however, in a manner which, had the request been granted, the intervening years have shown, it could have resulted only in hardship and sorrow.

Could God, who is the all-loving, infinitely good heavenly Father-Mother, bring evil upon His children, even in answer to prayer? Yet the Bible tells us, "Ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." But the promise is prefaced by a condition, which we sometimes forget: "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you." What is this "me" in which we are to abide? Is it not the Christ, Truth, which Jesus lived and exemplified?
