We recognize that an inherent desire in every individual is to realize the person God intended us to be. As we realize our true God selves, the greatest gift we can give another is to support him or her in becoming that God person too. 

Most important, every man, woman and child who lives in the Universe is significant to the Creator. Our doors will forever be open to all…

In Science of Mind there is a specific way to pray and it is called a treatment. We strive to see only see the truth about anyone that we are treating. We must not treat for the outer conditions as they are results and not cause. We must first see the divine perfect being before we can know the Truth for that person. The following excerpt from Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes expands upon that thinking. 


   Be specific in treating, be direct and definite in your mental work. You are dealing with Intelligence, so deal with It intelligently. The treatment must realize the patient as perfect, must recognize the word as power, must know that it breaks down every man-made law and casts it out, that it is the law of harmony and the recognition of the Presence of Good, that within itself it is unbounded, and equipped with the power to execute itself—and it must know that it does this. It must know that there is nothing that can change it, that there is no belief which can hinder it; that it cannot be reversed, misplaced, mislaid, neutralized or destroyed by any opposing force; that it does the thing it is supposed to do. And it must know that it is continuous and unremitting and will operate until it does all it is supposed to do.

Jesus said: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” And Isaiah understood something of this when he said: “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void.”
