A Parent's Responsibility

One of the great blessings Christian Science bestows on a parent is a knowledge of how to pray effectively for his own child. This prayer places the child mentally in God's heavenly kingdom, in the very presence of his Father-Mother God, at one with his divine Principle, Love. Mrs. Eddy states, "Prayer cannot change the Science of being, but it tends to bring us into harmony with it." Science and Health, p. 2;

The parent is not spiritualizing a mortal child through this prayerful, metaphysical work. He is spiritualizing his own concept of the child, seeing him as he really is, the immortal, spiritual image and likeness of God.
