Seeking help: responding to God

From the August 1995 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What is happening when a Christian Science practitioner is asked for help through prayer? Is somebody with a holy thought causing something to happen for somebody with a not-so-holy thought? Such a concept would put Christian Science treatment on a personal basis, even perhaps implying that from time to time we need an intermediary to gain access to God. That belief would deny the office and mission of the Christ, the divine healing influence in human consciousness.
