PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION

From the November 1903 issue of The Christian Science Journal


To many thinkers the terms prayer and supplication are synonymous, but in the light of Christian Science we find that prayer means that God's will is done, not shall be, and that in supplication we have usually desired our own way, and so have endeavored to instruct God as to what we think necessary. God is the one Mind, the one true thinker, the one Principle or governor, and so we cannot desire Him to do contrary to His divine will.
