The divine link

Is it selfish to pray for ourselves, or do we contribute to the advancement of mankind when we focus on healing what is diseased or deficient in our lives? As I’ve thought about this question, what has kept popping into my thought is the idea of breaking a link in a chain, or of severing a cord. 

In Psalm 129 we read, “The Lord is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked” (verse 4). What does the Bible mean by “cords of the wicked”? I’ve learned in Christian Science that they can be anything, including sickness or sin, that would claim to separate us from the goodness of a righteous God. 

We'd love to hear from you!
