More than fifty years ago a friend of mine who later became my husband gave me a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. At that time I was a member of an orthodox church and knew very little about Christian Science. However, I started to read the textbook with an open mind, and was so impressed with the chapter on Prayer that I reread it several times. In the meantime I began to attend services in a Church of Christ, Scientist.

Up to that time prayer, to me, meant petitioning God for help. I soon began to understand that God answers our prayers by virtue of His allness. Mrs. Eddy tells us on page 243 in Science and Health, "Truth, Life, and Love are a law of annihilation to everything themselves, because they declare nothing except God."
