Praying for victims of tragedy

The compassion Mary Baker Eddy felt for those in need and the breadth of her love for humanity are brought out in her statement "From the interior of Africa to the utmost parts of the earth, the sick and the heavenly homesick or hungry hearts are calling on me for help, and I am helping them" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 147).

Today, as news of tragedy in many parts of the world reaches us, we can pray with the same compassion and the same expectation that prayer is a direct and effective help. When we acknowledge man's spiritual and unbreakable relation with divine Love, we are calling on the divine law of Love that fully meets individual human needs.
