WHAT PRAYER CAN DO FOR HAITI

THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

"HAITI HAS moved to the centre of the world's thoughts and the world's compassion," British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said (The Scotsman, January 14). Edwidge Danticat, an award-winning Haitian-American author, said, "Life is already so fragile in Haiti, and to have this [earthquake] on such a massive scale, it's unimaginable how the country will be able to recover from this" (Buffalo News, January 14). And Dr. Louis-Gerard Gilles, a former Haitian senator, said, as he helped survivors, "Haiti needs to pray. We all need to pray together" (The Daily Press, January 13).

At such a time, those outside Haiti may well feel helpess and ask, What is the point of praying? How can it do any good? How can it help Haiti right now?
