Do your tomorrows ever come?

There will never be a better time to pray—and experience healing—than right now.

Often, in this fast-paced world, we tend to put off prayer. We think there will be a more opportune time in the future when things will be quieter, more orderly and peaceful—more conducive to healing. Or we may hope that a healing will occur on its own without our giving it much thought.

More than merely echoing the old saying "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today," Christian Science teaches us there's no need to put off until tomorrow the proof of what God has already done. Postponing a healing, postponing prayer, is unnecessary. As we read in II Corinthians, "Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." Right now God is All-in-all to His creation. He will never be more or less present and powerful than He is at this very moment.

Christ Jesus taught the ever-presence and power of God. And he showed the importance of not believing that good is absent, or that it must be postponed until the future, when he said, "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." A fundamental message of his ministry was summed up in the words "Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
