"Prayer that blesses one and all"

My victory would come through the understanding that everyone was governed and motivated only by Love.

I live in a country where people are challenged daily with poverty and hunger. My own family had been battling these issues for quite a while. Having been a Christian Scientist for many years, I knew that lack could not possibly be God’s plan for me or my dear family—or anyone else.

This became evident when a friend in a neighboring country had the idea to purchase a grinding mill for me. Our family could grind the local village’s corn into maize flour and receive payment either with cash or in kind. This would also provide a valuable service for the community, as it would allow them to buy maize flour at a fair price. Maize is the staple food in my country and maize flour is used to make breads, cereals, and many of our main dishes. 

As my friend did not at the time have the necessary funds for the mill, she asked me to join her in praying about the idea. I was reassured by this statement in the Christian Science textbook: “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 494). This told me I could trust that God, divine Love, would provide.
