“I am not creative!” I thought to myself one day after school. My English teacher had just assigned our high school class a project that we had to present in a fresh and creative way. Many of the other students had interesting and original ideas, but I had zero.
Days passed, and I had no idea what I was going to do. I started to get anxious. I didn’t like doing my homework at the last minute. The truth is, I felt I had other talents, but creativity was not one of them.
One day I suddenly had an idea: Why don’t you pray about this? It wasn’t the first time I had prayed, but it was the first time I had prayed without the supporting prayers of my mom or another Christian Scientist. At the time, I was attending the Christian Science Sunday School at my local Church of Christ, Scientist, and loved what I was learning about prayer. I was learning that prayer doesn’t ask God for something that we think we lack, such as a quality like creativity or health. Prayer acknowledges that God is our Father-Mother and has infinite qualities that we reflect and express as His likeness, and that God did not create any of His children lacking in some qualities. We express God completely, and so we are complete.
