"To day if ye will hear his voice"

In the Scriptures are instances of patriarchs, prophets, and apostles who heard God's voice. In Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy we are told, "The Soul-inspired patriarchs heard the voice of Truth, and talked with God as consciously as man talks with man" (p. 308). Many generations have loved and been uplifted and comforted by the experiences of those who listened to God and were preserved. Jacob at Peniel, Daniel in the lions' den, the three Hebrew captives in the fiery furnace are among the familiar accounts.

God speaks to us through His Word and through individual spiritual intuitions. An earnest, honest reaching out, a wholehearted desire to be obedient helps to prepare thought to receive God's messages. It is really simple—the child calling out and the Father answering in some way as this perhaps: A Christian Scientist was confronted with a difficult situation which required poise, endurance, and stamina. She felt herself inadequate and was frightened. In her dismay she cried out mentally, "God, help me."
