PRAYER AND GOVERNMENT

From the December 1937 issue of The Christian Science Journal


There is deep significance in the fact that in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, the initial chapter is a treatise on prayer; for however mistaken the thought may be, or however dim the vision, it is through prayer that men seek to know God. Too often, however, prayer has been regarded as a means or method by which some personal desire may be fulfilled or some event be brought to pass.
