How do I pray?

Many people people want to pray, but feel unsure how to move beyond repeating words.  A good place to deepen your understanding of prayer is with the Chapter on Prayer that opens Mary Baker Eddy’s textbook on healing, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. She explains that sincere prayer is desire. It does not change God, who is unchanging Love, but changes us, drawing us closer to God.

“The prayer that heals the sick and reforms the sinner,” she writes, “is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love.”  You can get a copy of Science and Health  at our Reading Room. It is also available at many libraries, and can be purchased or read online. Learn more about this book on the the Reading Room page.
