Never Displaced from Good   1 comment

When a problem is so widespread, so seemingly colossal, how does one effectively pray? 

This article about prayer for refugees, by Samuela Orth-Moore, a Christian Science practitioner, was published in the May 16, 2022 Christian Science Sentinel.

According to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, at the end of 2020, 82.4 million people were forcibly displaced either outside their home country as refugees or internally within their nation’s borders (unhcr.org).

This number has become of growing concern right here on my own doorstep. In recent weeks and months, people in Ethiopia, where I am living, are being internally displaced because of an escalating civil war, and some are fleeing to neighboring countries. I have been deeply distressed by the magnitude of this problem and what I have been hearing in the news and in the community around me.
