Praying for the neighborhood

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When I am searching for a higher understanding of harmony, I often pray with this definition of Christian Science that Mary Baker Eddy gives in her book Rudimental Divine Science: “... the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony” (p. 1).

Here’s an example of how appealing to this law of harmony helped me find calm and confidence that all would be well during a discordant situation that arose in my neighborhood. I was at my desk with the window open to take advantage of a cool ocean breeze. I had become intrigued by a comment made by a speaker on a podcast I was listening to. She quoted her Christian Science teacher as saying that each year we should find ourselves doing less of what anyone can do, and more of what only one who understands the divine Science of the Christ can do.

“Do what you know will be best for everyone involved: Pray for that true harmony and brotherly love to be made manifest right now!”
