The Heart of Prayer

One of the many blessings that Christian Science has brought into the lives of many is a vital understanding of prayer. Before new light was thrown on this important subject, prayer was apt to be a mere matter of form, a routine of daily religious duty.

Prayer was often addressed to an unknown God, who might send evil as well as good. Therefore, we sometimes pleaded for mercy at the throne of what we believed to be a far-away or changeable Deity, with little faith that we should receive an answer that would meet our needs. Christian Science has led us back to the Master's concept of prayer. It is teaching us that God's love is being continually poured out upon all, and that our prayer should be that we may be receptive to this outpouring.
