Readiness to Receive

It is one thing to ask for Christian Science treatment; it is another to be prepared to receive its benefits. One who is seeking the aid of Christian Science should pause to ask himself the question, Am I ready to be helped in Christian Science? before attempting to comply with the perhaps overzealous solicitation of some friend or acquaintance that he "try" Christian Science. It is often that practitioners receive letters remarkable for their brevity, in one brief sentence conveying the thought that the writers, who are entire strangers to Christian Science, desire immediate help. Such a procedure often works an injustice both to patient and to practitioner.

Definite information concerning what is termed absent treatment in Christian Science is always available, and should be obtained by patients before they decide as to their readiness to receive such treatment. They will very soon ascertain that something more is required of than a brief verbal or written request that help be given them.
