Fortified against accidents

It’s normal to want to keep ourselves and others safe. Regardless of how wisely prepared we may be for scenarios A through Z, though, material variables can prove to be unstable. That’s when prayerful reasoning in Christian Science shows that God’s plan doesn’t ever include chance, risk, or accidents. 

We’re grateful to have thoughtful articles in this issue that show how prayer is an active defense. Turn to page 15 to read about how Janet Horton, a retired United States Army chaplain, got colleagues together to “pray daily and specifically for the safety of soldiers” on a particular assignment. She says, “I called them all together for what I called a Spiritual Safety Briefing.” We think you’ll be interested to see how enthusiastically they embraced this approach and how effective it was. True preventative prayer at work!
