One day these words from Matthew kept coming to my thought (6:8): "Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." But then after that would come the argument, "If He knows our needs, why doesn't He meet them?" That night I called a Christian Science practitioner and told her of the despair I was feeling.
