God’s perfect governance

From the September 11, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


When we’re in need, we can turn to God and seek His help to deliver us from whatever challenge we may be facing. But when we do this, do we truly expect that the problem will be resolved? Or are we left wondering if we can really depend on prayer to bring results? Do we start to think that our prayers could be unheeded because they’re faulty or because we’re undeserving? Are there lapses in God’s goodness? The beneficial effects of prayer are never in doubt when we have a genuine understanding of God.
