A mother's prayers for her child

As a parent, the following passage from Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy has really helped transform my thinking and guide my prayers: “Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well. Sorrow is turned into joy when the body is controlled by spiritual Life, Truth, and Love” (p. 14). 

Sometimes that “single moment” is swift to come—and sometimes it appears to come in gradual steps—but however it happens, when we recognize the moment of truth, it fills our consciousness and brings the permanent healing we need.
