I had often read of people opening to a page in their Bible or in Science and Health and finding something there that guided their prayers for healing.
When I looked down at the page I’d opened to, my eyes rested on the following statement: “. . . you must begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really is” (p. 275). I tried valiantly to do this.
