PRAYING FOR THE WORLD
The tossing of ‘brick-bats’ at national leaders and politicians in the media has erupted with increasing intensity over the past months.
Though this may seem justifiable, I ask what does this achieve other than the mental and verbal venting of hot air until the next burst of news. We hear constantly of leaders needing to be removed because they’re dangerous; improved because they’re ineffectual; or reinstated because they’ve been usurped.
In a recent US newspaper the correspondent wrote: “Isn’t it time for us to be praying for the leader of this country – that would help them and us?” (Chicago Tribune)
This was a call to “up my game” to take a more spiritual approach. The banner of The Christian Science Church’s newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor says “The object of the Monitor is to “injure no man but to bless all mankind.”
One way we can bless mankind is to consider what the founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy wrote: “The government of divine Love is supreme. Love rules the universe, and its edict hath gone forth: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me,” and “love thy neighbor as thyself”. Let us have the molecule of faith that removes mountains – faith armed with the understanding of Love, as in divine Science, where right reigneth.”
Won’t this do more to bless all mankind than we’ll ever know!
