The Prayer of Salvation

[Original article in German]

After we begin to study Christian Science our attention is sooner or later drawn to the twenty-third Psalm, because this Psalm may be regarded as a prayer strictly in accordance with Christian Science. It is a prayer of affirmation. It is a declaration of the presence of God, good, and contains an assurance of supply by all-embracing Love. It shows how a true longing for God, a deep study of His Word, and devotion to Him bring full salvation.

In the first chapter of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," entitled "Prayer," we find ample explanation of the right kind of prayer, prayer which is answered and which includes giving thanks as well as asking blessings. Such prayer ushers us into heaven, the consciousness of Love. In this textbook Mrs. Eddy brings out the spiritual meaning of the twenty-third Psalm, as well as of the Lord's Prayer.
