Right Desire

"DESIRE is prayer," writes Mrs. Eddy on page 1 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." In these few words, she gives the spiritual significance of desire.

It became apparent to the writer, while waiting for a bus in a large city recently, that everyone who passed seemed to be desiring something, some intensely, others with less ambition; yet, as she analyzed the expression of dissatisfaction in their faces, it seemed probable that in most cases the object of their desires would be largely unobtainable. This made it clear that wishing for, or desiring, that which is merely material indicates a mortal sense of the absence of good, which is, in effect, a denial of the allness and everpresence of God and His ideas.
