Extinguishing tensions of conflict - A Christian Science perspective from The Christian Science Monitor

Praying to relieve tensions in North Korea.

As tensions have increased between North Korea and the rest of the world, many people are praying for answers. As a Christian Scientist, my prayers begin by considering the nature of God as the omnipotent source of universal love and goodness, who always cares for His creation. Time and again, I have seen that God provides insights that lead to solutions to problems, and I am praying to see that this can include solutions to problems as frightening as nuclear conflict. I have been inspired by this idea articulated by Christian Science Discoverer Mary Baker Eddy: “The pent-up elements of mortal mind need no terrible detonation to free them. Envy, rivalry, hate need no temporary indulgence that they be destroyed through suffering; they should be stifled from lack of air and freedom” (“Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896,” p. 356).
