The power of asking

From the November 20, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Mary Baker Eddy closed her autobiographical work, Retrospection and Introspection, with a poem that pretty well sums up her own lifelong aim and what she hoped students of Christian Science would strive for:  Ask God to give thee skill    In comfort’s art: That thou may’st consecrated be    And set apart    Unto a life of sympathy. For heavy is the weight of ill    In every heart; And comforters are needed much    Of Christlike touch.
