What do you really want?

Have you ever wondered whether something you desired was a worthy aspiration? It verged on the unnecessary, you reasoned, or you dismissed it as something quite beyond your present understanding of Christian Science. Did you give up without thinking it through?

Mrs. Eddy writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Desire is prayer; and no loss can occur from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded and exalted before they take form in words and in deeds." Science and Health, p. 1.

This hope-filled statement can be made our own today, and it involves joyous promises, which can be fulfilled. The molding and exalting are the work of God and His Christ. Our business is earnest prayer and trusting God, who supplies His creation with all that is worthwhile eternally. No matter what the particulars of each situation to be resolved, the results depend upon trust in our all-wise, all-loving Father-Mother God, which is what prayer is all about.
