Praying "for all that are in authority"

We are apt to think of the present as presenting unprecedented problems for mankind to solve—problems concerning freedom from exploitation, problems of self-government, problems posed by irreconcilable political and religious ideologies. But a survey of the history of mankind shows clearly that today's problems are age-old ones but on an ever-expanding scale.

However, despite appearances, solutions may be nearer than ever before. Alert Christian Scientists are glimpsing the present turmoil as a vast moral chemicalization in which a higher concept of Truth is uncovering error, preparatory to destroying it. In their prayers and work, they are seeking for a better world by obeying the divine commands urged by Christ Jesus—to love God, good, above all and one's neighbor as oneself. These commands are based on a recognition of God as Spirit and of the real man as His inseparable, spiritual expression, His image and likeness.
