Prayer points, peace points

As You Page through this week's Sentinel, you'll see it has a little different look to it. We've designed it to look different because the world has been looking different lately as reports about the war in Iraq have been flooding the media ... if not all the channels of human thought. But an important line of communication remains open, always: prayer.

Last week's Sentinel included a message from The Christian Science Board of Directors asking readers for continuing prayer "to settle conflicts in the Middle East and Persian Gulf." In response, this issue devotes itself almost entirely to prose and poems from people all around the world—from Australia to Brazil to Germany to Turkey to India—who are praying to lift the heart of humanity nearer to the heart of God. These around-the-globe "prayers" are literally wrapping the world in a 24/7 embrace of love.
