The scientific answer to loneliness

At one time I felt deeply lonely. Even though I was surrounded by friends and family and prayed for more happiness, I continued feeling lonely and unloved.

If our prayers are not answered, we may be misunderstanding the nature of effective prayer. Christian Science shows us that such prayer is based on an understanding of God's perfection and of His loving government of man, who reflects the divine nature. Though I didn't recognize it at the time, I was basing my prayer on the false premise that I was a lonely mortal who had to become an unlonely mortal. I needed to base my prayer on a foundation of spiritual knowing.
