“God with me” was my prayer
Taking moments to really feel God’s presence each morning, and sometimes at other difficult times during the day, became a lifeline.
I would sit in a quiet place, often in my bedroom, and take in a sweet sense of God’s tender, powerful presence with me. Things had turned upside down in my life overnight, and there were times when I was having trouble breathing because of how anxious I felt.
Although I had learned in Christian Science that I am God’s reflection—made in the image and likeness of God, spiritual and pure—during this time when I was struggling, the reflection concept didn’t feel like enough. I yearned to feel Father-Mother God’s presence right by my side, guiding me. I wasn’t feeling the close “at-one-ment,” or oneness, with God that Christ Jesus taught when he defined his relation to God by saying, “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30).

You are compassionate, Lord
