Texas drought and wildfires: How prayer can help

Jan Keeler, C.S.

While this chat was going on, six wildfires involving at least 1100 firemen were also going on. Jan mentioned this while also noting the tornadoes that had struck southern states in the US and the floods in the Midwest. She said, "I hope we will bring expectancy to our prayers together today, that we will acknowledge the power of our collective prayers." Citing a statement from Mary Baker Eddy's book Science and Health, "...expectation speeds our progress" (p. 426), she encouraged site visitors to expect healing results. She also shared an experience in which an individual was healed of severe burn injuries.

Participants asked about how to restore balance to the weather system, the influence of world turmoil on weather patterns, how to find daily inspiration when a problem like the drought seems to be going on and on. Concerns about safety and how to respond to the expectation that certain destructive weather conditions prevail at certain times of year, were raised. Financial issues when people are already struggling to keep going were also on the agenda.
