Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
1 - - Prayer
What we most need is the prayer of fervent desire
for growth in grace, expressed in patience, meekness,
love, and good deeds. To keep the commandments
of our Master and follow his
example, is our proper debt to him and the only
worthy evidence of our gratitude for all that he has
done. Outward worship is not of itself sufficient to
express loyal and heartfelt gratitude, since he has
said: "If ye love me, keep my commandments."
The habitual struggle to be always good is unceasing
prayer. Its motives are made manifest in the
blessings they bring, - blessings which, even if not
acknowledged in audible words, attest our worthiness
to be partakers of Love.
