The yes and no of prayer

When we look at Christ Jesus’ healing works, it seems clear that he refused to accept as fixed fact what appearances presented as true. For instance, when he raised Lazarus from the grave (see John 11:41–44), it’s evident that he wasn’t accepting the apparent finality of the situation. It was as if he was saying “no” to the concept of death and “yes” to the reality of life through his understanding of man’s immortal life in God, Spirit. 

It’s logical that a God of goodness, who is impartial, unconditional Love, as Jesus indicated (see Matthew 5:44, 45), could cause only health and harmony for His creation. This is divine law. It’s also the basis for drawing right conclusions and for effective prayer. Yet simply saying “yes” to good and “no” to discord when faced with some difficulty is not enough for a restoration of harmony.
