From the October 1921 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Every individual at some time has read or heard read the Scripture from Matthew, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened," and has wondered why it is seldom if ever made practical. Often it has been dismissed in a spirit of unbelief, or, if through previous training or an innate reverence for the Bible one were fearful of admitting utter disbelief in the truth of the statement, he would at least venture that the statement did not apply to him or his time.
