It’s natural to pray

The editorial on the facing page reminded me of how prayer has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. Not a day passes that I do not pray to God—acknowledging His presence, seeking His guidance, and thanking Him for His love and care. No matter where I am, I know that I can turn to God for the inspiration and understanding needed to feel His presence and accomplish whatever rightly has to be done.

I have found that my prayers have been most effective when they stem from a humble desire to understand more of the spiritual fact of God’s goodness and of our relationship to Him. Mary Baker Eddy writes: “Are we benefited by praying? Yes, the desire which goes forth hungering after righteousness is blessed of our Father, and it does not return unto us void” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 2).
