God’s perfect governance

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. Christian Science, which is based on the teachings of Christ Jesus, explains the nature of God and our relationship to Him as His spiritual image and likeness. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, wrote of winning her “way to absolute conclusions through divine revelation, reason, and demonstration” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 109).
