What is our motive?

Healing Through Glorifying God

From the November 1977 issue of The Christian Science Journal

If a problem seems unyielding despite persistent prayer, one might ask himself, "What is my motive for praying? To improve matter? Or to glorify God, good?" A problem can seem mountainous, can seem to dominate our mental horizon and limit our view of infinite good. Result: we find ourselves accepting it as a reality, an obstacle to peace and progress.
