THE FUNCTION OF PRAYER

From the October 1911 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IT should be remembered that Christianity is divine, not human; its means and methods are not evolved from the mortal mind; hence it is not surprising that the real function of prayer which is designed to lift thought above the sense of evil should not be readily understood by the evil-thinking mind. As a matter of fact mortals are being delivered or protected every day from troubles of various kinds through what they know of the right rule of things, although from this right rule the wrong way is wholly separated.
