Prayer in an earthquake

Recently a friend and fellow Christian Scientist said to me, “Isn’t it wonderful that we never have to fear, under any circumstances?”

What he meant by this, he said, was that we can always know that God is our refuge and help, no matter what the present, past, or future circumstances. We can face any challenge with the certain knowledge of God’s protecting power and all-embracing love. Both my friend and I recalled the comforting words in Isaiah: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (41:10).
