Prayer about unemployment: from millions, to one

From the July 25, 2011 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

A recent article in The New York Times included these words: “With more than 13 million people still out of work, analysts cautioned that it was too early to say whether the momentum could be sustained for a full recovery in the [American] labor market” (May 6, 2011). And a survey printed in The Journal of Commerce of more than 1,000 economists in 120 countries suggested that worldwide economic recovery “could be hurt by public deficits, inflation, and unemployment in the months ahead” (May 18, 2011).
