Questions & Answers

How can the prayers of the practitioner and patient blend together? Do they need to blend together?

From the April 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Q: When a Christian Science practitioner says to me as a patient, “I will be happy to support your prayer,” are they expecting me to be treating myself and they will only be prayerfully supporting what I’m doing? I’m calling them because I’m having a problem praying for myself. I’m expecting the practitioner to give me Christian Science treatment, to take the case and heal it, not just “support” me in my own prayer.
