Healing prayer that embraces humanity
The biblical story of the good Samaritan is a beautiful example of man’s humanity. It tells how a man helped a stranger lying hurt on the road. The Samaritan showed mercy and tender compassion, for he stopped to bandage the stranger’s wounds, took him to an inn, and paid to have him cared for in his absence. He showed an active, immediate response to another’s need, in spite of differing religious and cultural viewpoints.
One morning, when listening to the world news about the pandemic, I had an urgent desire to help—to do something! But what? Because of my state’s policy regarding staying at home, I felt helpless to do anything. But immediately I laughed at the absurdity of this suggestion, knowing that one of the most important things anyone could do was to pray.
