Mrs. Eddy writes in the textbook, Science and Health (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." I am profoundly grateful for the many times this statement has been proven, and is being proved, through my daily experiences in Christian Science.

About seventeen years ago I experienced severe nervousness and humbly desired to be free from the many tormenting fears which accompanied this condition. The doctor could not help me. It was at this time that my sister-in-law offered to loan me the textbook, which someone had loaned her.

Truly it met my need. The more I read the more I was convinced of the truth therein. One statement which was especially helpful is (ibid., p. 264), "We must look where we would walk, and we must act as possessing all power from Him in whom we have our being." I used this constantly and experienced a complete healing of the nervousness.
