Prayer—isn't it always answered?

One Sunday afternoon, as is my custom, I was preparing the Christian Science Bible Lesson for the following week, marking the citations in the Bible and in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. This study, outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, is basic for the student of this religion, and the dedication and constancy that he puts into this spiritual work help forward his progress.

The lesson for that week included some verses from Psalm 89. I read the complete psalm several times. According to what I read, it seemed that the Psalmist hadn't received the good promised by God, since at the end he asks, "Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, which thou swarest unto David in thy truth?" (verse 49).
