MOSES and the Women of Darfur

Prayer is always an important part of my day. And recently the violence portrayed in television newscasts had been compelling me to cherish the fact that God, as Love, could not create terror of any kind, anywhere. So when I discovered that my little cat, Moses, had been mauled by two dogs, that ongoing prayer helped me pray for him in a very specific way.

I immediately broadened my prayers to include animals—particularly Moses—in that love of God. This sentence by Mary Baker Eddy supported my reasoning: "God is the Life, or intelligence, which forms and preserves the individuality and identity of animals as well as of men" (Science and Health, p. 550). Moses' injuries appeared serious, and I carried him into the house. I wanted so much for him to be comfortable and well, and I felt prayer was the best care I could give him.
