“Fire season is a dreaded time of concern and heightened fear for residents and firefighters alike. My family lives in an area often afflicted by fires. The anguish and devastation sometimes experienced by my neighbors have prompted me to turn to God in urgent and fervent prayer. In seeking to heal and remedy the suffering of so many owing to wildfires, I’ve sought to understand the laws of God and how they are available to quench inflammation and prevent catastrophic wildfires.”

Here are a few thoughts that the author, Cindy Martin, shares in her contribution:

“I’m convinced that the truth of God’s omnipotent law, the law of Love, can be effectively applied to alleviate suffering from wildfires….”

“Tendencies toward human carelessness, ignorance, or intentional arson can be reversed through understanding that God, omnipotent Love, alone governs the man of His creating (the true identity of all of us).”

Working with the atmosphere of thought, she gives examples from the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, wherein Mary Baker Eddy gives these metaphysical definitions on page 586: “Fear. Heat; inflammation; anxiety;…” and “Fire. Fear; remorse; lust; hatred; destruction;…”

“The truth of God’s gentle presence brings calm, cools tempers, and lifts individuals to constructive, productive states of thought and methods for accomplishing justice and equity.”

“We need never feel helpless in the face of threatening conditions. God is at hand to provide everything needed.”

Martin gives two examples of how her prayer helped in extreme weather conditions to a gentleness that allowed safety for all concerned as well as two examples from The Bible.
