Prayer for the world—a call to love as Jesus did

"Why didn't we feel this way before?"

From the April 2002 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When human disaster brings us to our knees in prayer, God answers this prayer by resurrecting more love in our hearts. After the horrible events of September 11, which undoubtedly caused many people to pray as they never had before, there seemed to be a heightened degree of tenderness and care for family, friends—even total strangers.
