BACK TO BASICS

When you're in the middle of praying about a longstanding problem, it can sometimes be hard not to think, "I've prayed and prayed and prayed, and there hasn't been a change. What do I do now?" The issue may be financial, physical, social, political, or some concern that just nags relentlessly. But when a difficulty seems to drag on and on, and discouragement and doubt settle in, this often results in wondering if you'll ever be free again.

Having faced long-term difficulties myself, there are two things I've learned to do in my prayer: 1) Be persistent, and 2) Get back to the basics of healing as taught in Christian Science. By not giving up and instead returning to the fundamentals I've always known and loved, I've seen how this approach can result in a healing that has seemed a long time in coming.
