How we can help the world

Though there is plenty to fix in our world, solutions are within the reach of prayer.

Original in Spanish

The place where I work demands the greater part of my time. People who know me often ask if I don't become bored with being there. What is certain is that no one needs to feel bored if he occupies thought constructively. Although you may be preparing lunch, painting a picture, or simply having a good time, you can pray for the world that surrounds you. Prayer doesn't have to be a lot of words; it can be simply a more spiritual way of thinking. One way to pray is to let our approach to seeing things be guided by God, Truth. Instead of going along with traditional assumptions about our world, we can listen to what Truth imparts to us. Mrs. Eddy explains in Science and Health, "The rays of infinite Truth, when gathered into the focus of ideas, bring light instantaneously, whereas a thousand years of human doctrines, hypotheses, and vague conjectures emit no such effulgence."
