A sure refuge from storms

Disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, tidal waves, and earthquakes devastate areas around the globe in spite of the use of sophisticated surveillance devices to detect impending dangers, and precautionary measures such as early evacuation. Is there a sure refuge from such dangers?

Prayer is such a refuge.

Mrs. Eddy writes of prayer, "It makes new and scientific discoveries of God, of His goodness and power." No and Yes, p. 39. In the stillness of prayer, as thought draws close to God, recognizing His goodness and love as ever present and all-powerful, there is established a sacred sense of man's oneness with the Father as His spiritual offspring, which wards off fear and shields one from danger.
