Scientific action

From the July 1985 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It is our purpose in prayer to consciously express love for God—to acknowledge and show appreciation for the activity He manifests as proof of His presence and power. God is ever expressing Himself in the activity of His qualities and Mind-formed spiritual concepts, and man is ever reflecting activity.

Only when the human consciousness is unaware that God is the only Being, that all doing is His doing, does there appear to be an absence of qualities we can relate to His nature or an absence of ideas we can identify with His knowing. This seeming absence of God and His nature and knowing we call mortality and mortal-mindedness. But the only nature and the only knowing must be God's, and this assures us that all action truly occurring is spiritual, wise, and a blessing.

The understanding that infinite, divine activity is the only true activity nullifies mortal mind's claim to have produced erroneous action in an individual, a family, a church, or in a community, social, or economic group. To the degree we each claim and express Christly qualities that have their source in God, and also accept as our consciousness spiritual concepts or ideas of Truth, we experience the scientific, healing action that proceeds from the divine cause, God. This is evidenced humanly in provision, protection, redemption, restoration, health, happiness.
