"Desire is prayer"

Mary Baker Eddy , the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 1), "Desire is prayer; and no loss can occur from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded and exalted before they take form in words and in deeds."

Prayer is the desire for good. It transcends such personal, selfish desires in the world as: I want money; I want power; I want beauty; I want fame; I want position; I want adulation; I want health; I want happiness.
