Our role in dealing with Zika

First appeared as a Web Original on February 12, 2016. 

In light of an international alert that has been sounded regarding a so-called Zika virus disease, what are steps that can be taken immediately wherever we are?

Our calm conviction of God’s allness and His goodness lets in light that dispels the darkness.

Prayer in Christian Science approaches every situation from a spiritual basis. It follows the Bible teachings of God making an entirely good creation as recorded in Genesis 1, and Christ Jesus’ example that human experience can give evidence of that good creation through a spiritual understanding of that truth. As we let God’s all-encompassing love and goodness permeate our thought, that original goodness shines forth and is more evident in day-to-day life. Praying from this basis regarding the so-called Zika threat, we can affirm that the all-powerful, mothering presence of God can be felt in every aspect of being in every corner of the globe—radiating perfect love that naturally dissolves fear, uncertainty, disease, and despair.
