Shifting Points by Michael-Blu
SHIFT TO PEACE THROUGH PRAYER
As Wind carries our prayers for Earth and All Life, may respect and love light our way.
May our hearts be filled with compassion for others and for ourselves.
May peace increase on Earth. May it begin with me.
– Tibetan prayer flag is ‘Lung ta’, meaning ‘Wind Horse’
As a nation, we need to be better. It starts by looking within to find peace and harmony. We need to practice deep listening and deep understanding. We also need to learn to forgive, forgive from the heart. Pointing fingers is not the answer. We need to start the process of healing from within. The change begins with ourselves…we are the change that needs to happen. Examine your heart, look for truth…find the love. We should all be moving forward in peace.
Enough is enough. We must come together as a collective ONE and pray. Pray for peace, pray for unity, pray for love, pray for healing, pray for all. It makes no difference to me who you pray to, just pray…PRAY FOR UNDERSTANDING & CHANGE. God hears our prayers and will intervene…JUST PRAY
An Interfaith Prayer for Peace
O God, you are the source of life and peace.
Praised be your name forever.
We know it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace.
Hear our prayer in this time of crisis.
Your power changes hearts.
Muslims, Christians and Jews remember, and profoundly affirm,
that they are followers of the one God,
Children of Abraham, brothers and sisters;
enemies begin to speak to one another;
those who were estranged join hands in friendship;
nations seek the way of peace together.
Strengthen our resolve to give witness to these
truths by the way we live.
Give to us:
Understanding that puts an end to strife;
Mercy that quenches hatred, and
Forgiveness that overcomes vengeance.
Empower all people to live in your law of love
Buddhist Earth Prayer
We gently caress you, the Earth, our planet and our home.
Our vision has brought us closer to you, making us aware of the harm we have done to the life-network upon which we ourselves depend.
We are reminded that we have poisoned your waters, your lands, your air.
We have filled you with the bones of our dead from war and greed.
Your pain is our pain.
Touching you gently, we pray that we may become peace-bringers and life-bringers so that our home in its journey around the Sun not become a sterile and lonely place.
May this prayer and its power last forever.
A Native American Prayer for Peace
O Great Spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you.
To your messengers the four winds,
and to Mother Earth who provides for your children.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect,
and to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace in mind.
Let us learn to share all the good things you provide for us on this Earth.
No matter what your race, religion, sexuality, gender…we can all make a difference in the world, in someone’s life. Be a blessing to someone. Be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. We have so much power in our hearts to make a real difference in someone’s life, to bring about change in a world that needs our kindness, and to implement peace with our neighbors. Pray for peace…be the change.
