Good: how many sources?

Many people find that when they pray they experience good. The good that prayer enables them to see and experience obviously comes from God. But much good also occurs on occasions when no one has prayed. How is that explained? Do things just work out by chance without any particular connection with prayer and God?

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, "No wisdom is wise but His wisdom; no truth is true, no love is lovely, no life is Life but the divine; no good is, but the good God bestows." Science and Health, p. 275. All that is truly good has its source in God, the great Giver. Acknowledging God as the source of every manifestation of good in our lives and in the world expands our awareness of the presence and power of God. That awareness is more than just a nice thing to have. It actually operates in experience as protection and aid.
