When someone is facing a crisis, many people are quick to offer their sincere prayers. Yet, not everyone thinks prayer is beneficial or rational, or even agrees what it means to pray.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, devoted the first chapter of her textbook on Christian healing to the subject of prayer.

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).
