A few years ago I was going through a very challenging time during the breakup of my marriage. All my prayer and attention was focused on trying to prevent a divorce, in spite of the fact that it appeared to be the right decision.

I was overwhelmed with resentment and self-pity, and I found it difficult to pray with understanding and confidence. This was a novel situation for me, since all my life I had turned to God as my true Father-Mother, the source of my life and my health, and had always found healing and protection. Measles, severe burns, injuries from a skiing accident, a dislocated knee, internal complications after the birth of my daughter, deep cuts from falling on sharp objects, a diseased kidney condition, to name only a few, had been healed very quickly, and the healings have been permanent. So there was no question in my mind that I could turn to God for guidance and trust that His care for me would be reliable and complete.

But then, why was I having so much difficulty in this relationship? Why couldn't I prove that God's harmonious government included every single one of us?
