THE PRAYER OF EFFECTIVE SELF-CARE
"WHEN THE SCIENCE OF BEING is universally understood, every man will be his own physician, and Truth will be the universal panacea," wrote Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 144). Is such a concept attainable? Can anyone learn to be his or her own physician, and, in turn, be a physician to others? The Christian Science Sentinel says, Yes! And in our pages this week, we have explored that possibility and discussed ways to nurture spirituality and the ability to pray effectively.
At times prayers may feel like hollow words. During those hungry-heart times, fresh inspiration may be elusive, and even getting on one's knees mentally and physically may not feel helpful. Yet God is wherever we are—and His ideas are heaped and pouring over in abundance. And that very moment of yearning can be seen as an overture to follow Jesus' example. The Gospels tell of Jesus' all-night prayer vigils, of his stepping away from increasingly large crowds to snatch moments to discern and acknowledge God's omnipotence, and moments to acknowledge his own reason for being—to serve the God he understood to be Love itself.
