It started out as an assignment from my Sunday School teacher. We were learning how to pray for ourselves through Christian Science. She gave us two assignments. (I'll share the second one later.)
The first was to pray every day by "stating the truth" about ourselves. To me, stating the truth about myself means not asking, but knowing that I am a perfect reflection of God. I am created in God's image, and because of this, when expressing Him, I can express only perfection.
Our Sunday School teacher gave us a quiet moment at the end of class to begin this first assignment. During that moment, I revisited a thought that had been bothering me from time to time throughout the summer.
