Global prayers

A number of years ago, a friend of mine was staying in a hotel in Istanbul, Turkey. She said that early one morning she awoke to the Muslim call for prayers. Because she usually started her day studying the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, she felt she wanted to enter into the spirit of prayer herself. So she broke out these books, and prayed and studied while those of the Muslim faith carried out their daily prayers in the mosque across the street.

People around the world pray daily. Sometimes this activity is called something other than prayer—meditation, maybe, or reflection, or some other name that means getting in touch with God—or Allah—or the Supreme Being. But the feeling that comes out of genuine prayer is one of being in the arms of God—of feeling His/Her love in your heart, and sharing that love with others so they feel that love in their hearts.
