What's your opinion?

Beyond rigid, personal views is the wisdom that comes from God, the one unerring Mind.

A While back I found myself feeling very strongly about a work-related challenge. I was so convinced I knew what was right to do that I didn't feel like praying. As a student of Christian Science, however, I recognized this as a danger signal. I knew the only way to find a really effective and satisfying answer to the problem was through prayer. So, under the circumstances there was only one course to follow: I had to ask God to show me how to pray.

There is a Biblical basis for this childlike approach to prayer. In Romans, Paul writes, "The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" (8:26). I decided to let Spirit, God, speak to my heart. I quieted myself and did all I could to listen.
