Addressing the threat of forest fires

As I prepared for a trip last summer, I wondered if it was prudent to drive into areas where the fire danger was posted as high. Even in my home state of Oregon, a forest fire had been burning for many weeks and was still being reported as zero percent contained. There was definitely an element of fear and worry involved in planning my trip.

I thought back to a forest fire that had burned across southern Oregon in 2002. While firefighters from around the world worked tirelessly to contain the blaze, our Christian Science branch church decided to do a round-the-clock prayer watch with volunteers taking turns praying for two hours at a time. The experience really brought home to me that we can do our part in helping during times of trouble through prayer.
