How are you praying about Ukraine?

As the Russian invasion and bombardment of Ukraine continues, we have heard from a number of Sentinel readers about how they’ve been praying for peace. When a world situation seems grim, how can turning to God bring lasting solutions? These six contributors, based in Europe and the United States, share their prayerful answers. In addition, The Mary Baker Eddy Library has shared an account of Mrs. Eddy’s and Mother Church members’ involvement in praying for the cessation of hostilities in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–1905.

From Laura Lapointe:

Whenever I’m faced with a serious situation in the world, I start by resolving the things I’m seeing into thoughts, and exchanging “the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 269)—which is a way of praying. At times, it can feel as if praying for peace just isn’t enough. Yet I believe, and know from experience, that our thoughts have more of an impact than we realize, sometimes in unexpected ways.
