Children protected

Fear for our children and their safety can seem overwhelming. But it is helpful to know that no one is ever alone, because no one can be without the all-encompassing love of God, our Father and Mother. As Psalm 91 says, God is our “shield and buckler” (verse 4), and we all live “under the shadow of the Almighty” (verse 1).

When I was a very young child, my grandmother brought me to the nursery in the branch Church of Christ, Scientist, she attended, and later she enrolled me in the Sunday School. I remember learning that God loved me and everyone, and that He would always protect us. I learned, among other things, the Lord’s Prayer, the twenty-third Psalm, a children’s prayer titled “Mother’s New Year Gift to the Little Children” (see Mary Baker Eddy, Poems, p. 69), and the “Daily Prayer” from the Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy.
