From the December 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The article “The fruits of Christly prayer” by Liz Butterfield Wallingford in the September Journal offers thoughtful remarks related to the account of Jesus and the fig tree found in the Bible (see Matthew 21:18–22). It was, in fact, an answer to my morning prayer. 

I had been praying to uplift thought about a troubling human problem, and I was seeking ideas to counter it. The author’s comment that anything not from God should wither away and disappear was just the idea that I needed to pray with. Thank you!
