The moment I found out about effective prayer
When I was in first grade, a relative told my father about Christian Science. Just a couple of months later, quite a significant – actually, life-changing – event occurred in my life.
Here is where you can watch a video about it:

Everyone, without exception, is included in God’s spiritual creation, as flawless, whole, loving, and harmonious. My growing spiritual view of God and His creation is, not something ethereal, or “out there,” but is something very real, permanent, and tangible.
And so prayer, to me, is not merely asking God for something, but involves becoming more aware of ourselves as God actually made us, as He preserves us and knows us—as the Bible says, “in His image and likeness.” This kind of prayer brings about a wonderful change in our consciousness, revealing that we're the inherently good and entirely harmonious creation of the all-harmonious, all-good Creator. This mental change removes fear and suffering, restores calm, and we see everything resume normal action and function. I love the fact that God's care and love are infinite and impartial. No one is excluded from the benefits of His healing power and affection. My first healing as a child showed me that God's powerful truths and laws transcend age and experience. These truths are not just some sort of “pie-in-the-sky” future help; they are a present help. Like Paul in the Bible, I too, surely have felt the kind of gratitude that makes me say, "Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift," (II Cor. 9:15).
