Prayer provides the means

Nlandu Sedrick
In the late 1990s, class instruction in Christian Science looked impossible for me. For some years, I’d had a great desire to take class for my spiritual growth, as I wanted to be a Christian Science healer. But during that time I was jobless, and I asked myself where I could find money for this dream to come true. It seemed difficult to answer. 

A friend of mine, a student of Christian Science with whom I used to share my concerns, explained to me that God is very good and has everything good in store for us, His beloved children. My friend said further that we are absolutely not intended to want, or to lack anything we need. God is Love, and He never leaves His children in a helpless situation. Our infinite resources are established in consciousness, and they are found through prayer—the prayer that is not a request that God provide something currently lacking, but a recognition that each one of us, as His idea, is under the care of a loving Father-Mother God. As we understand that He provides for all, we can see resources as unlimited. My friend encouraged me to trust God. 

God's law is one of increasing return on investment.
