Insights on prayer for a world

In 1983, I was a new reader of the Bible and Science and Health, studying international relations and Latin American history in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I adopted a prayer regimen.

Each week I took a newspaper, read through every article, and prayed for every situation described in each section—politics, economics, business, fashion, sports, entertainment. I was discovering that prayer is a tremendous power for good, and that, through it, anyone can contribute directly to the world's well-being. That year, like many other people, I prayed almost daily for the Argentine elections, which happened smoothly that December, bringing democracy back to Argentina and giving a strong democratic impulse to all of Latin America.
