THE EFFICACY OF PRAYER

From the November 1953 issue of The Christian Science Journal


At a Wednesday evening testimony meeting, when a long pause occurred before the testimonies began, the First Reader asked the congregation if anyone present remembered his first prayer, and if so, if he would be willing to share his experience. Helpful experiences were related with spontaneity and gratitude by those who in an hour of need had turned earnestly to God for the first time in prayer and had thereby proved the power of the divine law which operates to supply the human need.
