The water of life
Recently a news program reported that many of the world’s major aquifers are in a serious state of depletion (PBS NewsHour, June 17, 2015, “Is the world’s fresh water supply running out?”). Right about the same time, The Christian Science Monitor reported on water management innovations in Israel—“turning seawater into tap water, pioneering new types of irrigation, and reusing wastewater at the highest rate of any country in the world” (“Defying Drought,” The Christian Science Monitor Weekly, June 22, 2015). Last year these methods produced a water surplus during that nation’s driest year on record.
Both of these informative reports made clear that more diligent efforts to improve water management worldwide are called for. And the Monitor’s report showed that it’s possible. But it’s clear from reading both of them that humanity needs our prayers as well. Not only to support the development of better water management, but to support a clearer recognition of what it is that sustains life itself.
Many of us know from experience the practical effects of spiritually scientific prayer. And we have assurance from the Bible, and from the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, that such prayer has effect far beyond ourselves.
