Prayer and antiterrorism

The Christian Science Monitor

The world is desperately searching for some effective way to reduce and even to end terrorism. Human solutions, at their best, have been found wanting to some degree.

Yet there is a spiritual solution that can prove highly effective. It is humble, fervent prayer, and indeed many individuals, including government officials, are praying, daily.

Prayer that supports those in government helps them to deal wisely with the intricate political and personal issues that are often involved in terrorism, such as the immediate safety of hostages or long-term policy changes. Prayer that springs from a clear perception that God alone governs, and that His qualities are continuously expressed in man, can help those in government express an even greater degree of wisdom, patience, endurance, restraint, courage.
