Marriage saved and healed

The Christian Science Monitor

Can a rocky marriage be saved by prayer?

I learned that the answer is yes. But it helps greatly when the prayer has a scientific basis; that is, when both partners strive to lift thought from the merely conventional, material view of each other to the spiritual view, the true view. When husband and wife are resolutely determined to see each other more as God knows and has created them, good things begin to happen.

When my marriage was in deep trouble, I visited a Christian Science practitioner (one who devotes full time to helping others through prayer) and spilled out my dismal story. Among other things, I remember saying, "The real problem is, her personality and my personality just don't fit together anymore."
