Prayer that illuminates good

- Teachers Talk

People naturally ask, “Isn’t Christian Science meant for much more than physical healing?” It certainly is, and that “much more” has to do with truly finding God, the divine Principle of life. 

Approaching life with the laws of divine Science results in rebirth and new views—not just for one inspired moment, but for every ongoing moment. Each thought and human condition is transformed when we treasure and nurture our newborn understanding of divine Love, God .

The opportunity to apply this Science beyond the ambit of our own personal concerns keeps us more awake to Christ’s invisible presence, and helps us deal better with the issues needing prayerful attention in our lives. When someone asks for prayer to find physical healing, the joy of this work is not just producing more smoothly functioning biology; it is seeing that individual as being free to do more good.
