Bombarded by bad news? Prayer reveals what’s good and true.

Often, when you turn on your TV or radio or even look at your smartphone, you realize that spiritual concepts seem to stand in radical contradiction to material existence. 

Excessive generalizations and dramatizations about the downfall of society are rampant. Yet Psalm 91 in the Bible exhorts us not to fear the terror that comes by night, the arrow that flies by day, the pestilence that walks in darkness, or the destruction that strikes in the middle of the day. How can we courageously face the negative images that bombard us, and know what is good and true?

In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, we read, “Delusion, sin, disease, and death arise from the false testimony of material sense, which, from a supposed standpoint outside the focal distance of infinite Spirit, presents an inverted image of Mind and substance with everything turned upside down” (p. 301).
