Today is God’s day!

Through my study of Christian Science, I’ve had many wonderful healings of serious issues such as disease, financial lack, and problematic relationships. I’ve also experienced healings of many of the little challenges that come up in daily life. Although I’m always grateful when a problem is healed as the result of prayer, for years I had a nagging feeling that praying about minor matters, such as shopping lists and vacation plans, was a bit selfish and self-indulgent—especially in view of the suffering there appears to be in the world today. However, an experience I had about ten years ago gave me new insight into the intrinsic value of prayer, no matter how big or small the situation we’re facing.

On a Sunday afternoon in September, my husband and I were by the waterfront in upstate New York, planning to take a boat ride on the Hudson River. Since we made the mistake of running an errand first, we arrived too late and missed the boat by a few minutes. I was crushed, deeply disappointed about the upheaval in our plans, and angry at myself for having run that errand.
