Protected and guided during a hurricane

Growing up near the ocean in a region where hurricanes occur, I have prepared for and endured these torrential storms numerous times. One hurricane experience, however, was especially memorable to me because through prayerful reliance on God as the only presence and power, a friend and I were divinely protected and guided during the storm. The experience proved that, as the Bible relates, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1). 

Studying the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, has helped me understand the practicality of prayer. These two books serve as indispensable guides to successfully maneuver through everyday challenges. They point out that each of us has an essential and eternal relationship to God. They also draw attention to God’s healing power, protection, and care for His creation.
