Earth Day and the power of prayer
On this Earth Day and every day, we can look to God for the selflessness, inspiration, and spiritual poise that help us do our part in caring for our planet.
We’ve taken a trip through The Christian Science Publishing Society’s archives to compile this collection, which features articles with an Earth Day-specific focus. Each piece highlights the value of prayer in addressing environmental issues, offering insights on a key question: What can each of us do to help the Earth?
“Finding safety in our true environment” counters the underlying belief that we’re at the mercy of conditions beyond our control, exploring how looking at situations through a spiritual lens can “bring to light glimmers of Spirit’s pure and safe environment.”
The author of “My Earth Day prayer” explores how mobilizing our thought to see how we all reflect the intelligence of our divine creator can play a crucial role in working toward the goal of a flourishing Earth.
In “Standing on ‘holy ground’ this Earth Day,” the author considers how shedding materialistic views brings healing to the environment.
The author of “Earth Day and a truer view of nature” shares how seeing our planet through a spiritual lens “brings into focus the awe-inspiring solidity of the spiritual qualities that nature hints at” and inspires solutions to problems.
“Earth Day: What Earth do we celebrate?” explores how a spiritual perspective of Earth “points to the possibilities for transforming our experience, our world.”
“The more we focus on the spiritual reality as the scientific fact,” explains the author of “Earth Day: A call to prayer,” “the more we’ll see the spiritual nature of God’s creation manifested” – the basis for healing and progress.
