Wildfires and prayer

From the Christian Science Sentinel - July 22, 2008

After waking up to yet another day of heat, falling ash, and semi-darkness (the sun’s rays were blocked by smoke), I felt the need to pray some more about the wildfires here in Northern California. So instead of giving my mental consent to the idea that destructive forces in nature were running out of control, I turned to God for a shift in perspective.
