In my prayers for resolution of the Ukrainian war, I frequently find inspiration in this quote written by Mary Baker Eddy:
“God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government, reason, and conscience. Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love”
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 106).
I pray that the one Mind of Truth and Love guide and govern the thoughts of all peoples on both sides of the conflict. That the future of mankind is not one group of people controlling another, but one God inspiring everyone to think and act in the best interest of all around them.
The right to self-government, under God’s government, is inalienable. It is never lost or stolen.
