Practical instructions for living.
Within you is an inexhaustible source of power, if you can but contact it. That power can heal you, and it can inspire you by telling you what to do and how to do it. It can bring you out of the land of Egypt into the Promised Land flowing with milk and honey. It can give you peace of mind, and, above all, it can give you direct knowledge of God.
That power is Scientific Prayer.
There is no problem that prayer cannot overcome, and no good thing that it cannot bring into your life.
This is the message of the whole Bible. It was summed up by Jesus when he said, The Kingdom of God is within you. Man is slow to realize this, and he wastes his life running after outer things and missing the one thing that matters. He is like an impoverished farmer who has a gold mine under his fields but doesn't know it. He writes and telephones the bank frantically for credit. He pleads with relatives and with money lenders to help him and all the time the gold mine lies under his fields untouched and unsuspected.
This truth was dramatically illustrated by an incident which happened in real life a number of years ago. The body of a tramp, clad in rags, was discovered near a lime kiln where he had evidently crept for warmth. After the autopsy his clothes were torn up to be put into the incinerator, and, sewn into the lining of the trousers was a bank note for a large amount. Unquestionably the original owner of the suit had had it sewn in there for safety, and for some unknown reason lost track of it.
Consider the situation! Thispoor hobo had sat down many a time to lukewarm coffee and stale bread or pie, and was probably glad to get it-- and all the time he was sitting on a thousand dollars, and didn't know it! Had he realized the wealth be possessed he would have slept under a roof on the fatal night, instead of in the fields -- and so preserved his life. Perhaps he would have made a new start with that capital, and done well.
Most people are like the hobo in some respect or other, because most people feel a lack of some kind in their lives. They may have plenty of money and yet be hoboes for health or happiness or spiritual experience.
Riches do not become wealth until they are realized. A talent is dead until it is exploited. Cash your bill at the Bank of Heaven and make it productive in your life.

This book is a collection of short, one or two page, discourses that are very powerful. The Truth resonates within this book. Make Your Life Worthwhile explains how to change your life by understanding and getting closer to God. Having just finished reading it, I intend to start over at the beginning.
