Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
1 - - Prayer
Audible prayer is impressive; it gives momentary
solemnity and elevation to thought. But does it produce
any lasting benefit? Looking deeply
into these things, we find that "a zeal . . .
not according to knowledge" gives occasion for reaction
unfavorable to spiritual growth, sober resolve, and
wholesome perception of God's requirements. The motives
for verbal prayer may embrace too much love of
applause to induce or encourage Christian sentiment.
