How I’m praying about the Israel-Hamas war

We asked for submissions related to the Israel-Hamas war and received an outpouring. Thank you to all who contributed! Below are a few submissions that represent the generous and sincere prayer going on among those who study and appreciate the teachings of Christian Science. We plan to feature more in the coming weeks. 

I needed to prepare readings from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy for a testimony meeting at my local Church of Christ, Scientist. In my role as First Reader, I knew I had to find a way to help our congregation’s prayers about the situation in the Middle East. As I was praying, I was inspired to insist that divine Love is present in both Israel and Gaza. I spent time knowing that individuals could feel the presence of Love, God, and that everyone naturally reflects Love. No power could blind them to their individual commitment to Love. I prayed to see evidence, no matter how small, that compassion existed, was active, and could not be destroyed.
