In support of just governance

A presidential impeachment trial in the United States. A major government shake-up in Russia. Persistent anti-government protests around the world. It can seem as if the only certainty in government is uncertainty and strife. Here are some thoughts to inspire prayers to recognize a deeper, divine justice, which provides a basis for hope and harmony.

Forever firm Thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep:
How wise the wonders of Thy hands;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep.
– Isaac Watts, “Christian Science Hymnal,” No. 111

May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth.
Psalms 67:4, New International Version

No wisdom is wise but His wisdom; no truth is true, no love is lovely, no life is Life but the divine; no good is, but the good God bestows.
Mary Baker Eddy, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” p. 275
