I'm really doing something!

Is there any greater joy than to find out that wherever one is—office, bedroom, car, backyard—one can pray effectively? In James we read, "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16; How rewarding to know that one's thoughts can truly bless, help, and heal others! But how do we go about this kind of praying? What is present? What is going on?

The oneness and allness of good is going on. And we can know this. God, divine Mind, is forever speaking and acting, and God's reflection, man, is constantly hearing and active. This action is the only action going on anywhere and everywhere. Any contradiction of the above, any misapprehension or deviation from it, is but a supposition—an illusion without space to fill, power to act, or mentality to occupy.

These truths can be so clearly seen, resolutely maintained, and joyfully accepted that healing is inevitable. Spiritual truths must bring results, whether instantaneously or eventually, because they evidence God's Word. Isaiah tells us, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isa. 55:11; Every truth known, every inspiration nurtured, every insight recognized and honored, is evidence of Mind's ability and availability to comfort mankind. Divine Principle is practical and provable every moment.
