What Are We Praying For?

God, Spirit, is All-in-all. Consequently, all true substance is Spirit. Spirit and its spiritual creation is the somethingness of all real being. Matter is unreal. Materiality counterfeits spirituality but possesses of itself no truth, no real existence. Matter is an illusion, nothingness.

These absolute truths of Christian Science determine the proper approach to prayer. If our object is merely to attain a material thing or condition, we are missing the full potential of prayer. On the other hand, when we seek the spiritual, when we pray for the understanding of God's allness and the nothingness of matter, we are assuredly praying from an effective basis.
