Scientific Prayer

That prayer is the medium through which abundant good may be brought into one's experience is demonstrated in the lives of loyal students of Christian Science. Down through the ages much has been said and written as to what constitutes true prayer. Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, through divine inspiration has given the world the incomparable chapter "Prayer" in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

When our Saviour was asked by his disciples to teach them how to pray, he gave them what we now call the Lord's Prayer. In "No and Yes" (p. 39) Mrs. Eddy has supplied this most enlightening definition of prayer: "Prayer is the utilization of the love wherewith He loves us. Prayer begets an awakened desire to be and do good. It makes new and scientific discoveries of God, of His goodness and power. It shows us more clearly than we saw before, what we already have and are; and most of all, it shows us what God is."
