This question was recently presented to the writer: "How can I learn more about praying?" This is a good question, for everyone should be deeply interested in knowing better how to pray.
We should all progress in our understanding of prayer. In its true sense, prayer is communion with God. Communion indicates a sense of closeness with God, of oneness, or unity, with Him. In this communion we talk with God, and He talks with us. As we progress in understanding Him, as faith deepens into a fuller realization of the truths of being, we are ever more conscious of our oneness with God.
In the highest concept of prayer, we affirm and acknowledge the perfection of God, our oneness with Him, our wholeness as His image. As we read the Psalms, we are aware that many of them are prayers of declaration and affirmation. Christian Science treatment is prayer, the highest type of prayer. It is the realization of the allness of God and the understanding of man as he truly is—the image and likeness of God. Praying, whether we pray for ourselves or another, includes perceiving ever more clearly what real being is.
