Wildfires, tornados, and floods, can prayer help our communities in times of disaster?
The poor and the helpless have fled to you
and have been safe in times of trouble.
You give them shelter from storms
and shade from the burning heat.
Holy Bible, Isaiah 25:4, Good News Translation
Step by step will those who trust Him find that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 444
While my wife and I got the children ready to leave the school and awaited instructions, I felt a calm assurance that God was in control.
Prayer in the face of disaster
David Barker, The Christian Science Journal, August 2006
… we can call upon God in prayer rather than feel we need to rush in, roll our sleeves up, and personally bear the burden of whoever or whatever seems in distress or danger.
A world in need of rescue?
Jan Klesse, Christian Science Sentinel, March 30, 2020
We’re steadfastly protected by Your power,
Encircled in the caring arms of Love.
Together, we are sharing all our days now,
And year by year come blessings from above.
Christian Science Hymnal, Hymn 594
