Prayer that moves mountains

Think how raptly the disciples of Christ Jesus must have listened as their Master taught them how to pray! His prayers "moved mountains": comforted the sorrowing, reformed the sinning, healed the sick, even raised a man four days dead. Jesus specifically rejected mere ritual, in these words: "When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do." Matt. 6:7.

Christian Science echoes Jesus' concern that his followers not mistake "vain repetitions" for genuine prayer. In a chapter contrasting faith cure and Christian Science in her book Retrospection and Introspection, Mary Baker Eddy writes, "Belief is virtually blindness, when it admits Truth without understanding it." Ret., p. 54.
