Thine will my Lord not mine. You know most of us down here ask for your guidance and intervention, We are all your children yet we continue to fight among ourselves. We have failed you. Prophet after prophet preached peace and we still don't get it. you told us revenge is mine, we don't take your word for it. You gave us a beautiful world, a few years to live, we insist on stealing that life from each other. We forget this life is temporary, success is temporary and short-lived when it is established by force. We break all your laws Lord. We covet each others natural resources. We send our most valuable products: our youth to die. Nothing is sacred for us Lord. Democracy is an illusion. Majority does not rule. We talk about God but we have forgotten to be Godly. We have forgotten to be your people. We have no face to approach you. Would you take us into your grace anyway? Please. Amen.

Father, Mother, God, Sweet Sweet Spirit: I know that you are everywhere and in everyone. You are the light found as a twinkle in the eyes of every man woman and child. I know that your power is felt as one heart reaches out in love towards another. I know that it is this love that heals any sense of separation. I know that this separation is only an illusion. You are in me. You are in everyone... even those who have forgotten it in themselves. Even in the midst, I know this. It is this love, that is ever available, in infinite supply that we find peace. Peace with our selves & peace with others. With each breath, we choose to be that peace. I know that our leaders have that same entitlement to choose. I know that Your whispers can guide them to find harmless solutions. I pray that everyone comes to know you in there hearts and in their actions.
I thank You, Spirit for always being You. Ever present and ever bountiful. I release my expectations and offer commitment to remain as a light of the coming dawn... where we all realize our oneness in You.

O Thou kind Lord! Thou hast created all humanity from the same stock. Thou hast decreed that all shall belong to the same household. In Thy Holy Presence they are all Thy servants, and all mankind are sheltered beneath Thy Tabernacle; all have gathered together at Thy Table of Bounty; all are illumined through the light of Thy Providence.
O God! Thou art kind to all, Thou hast provided for all, dost shelter all, conferrest life upon all. Thou hast endowed each and all with talents and faculties, and all are submerged in the Ocean of Thy Mercy.
O Thou kind Lord! Unite all. Let the religions agree and make the nations one, so that they may see each other as one family and the whole earth as one home. May they all live together in perfect harmony.
O God! Raise aloft the banner of the oneness of mankind.
O God! Establish the Most Great Peace.
Cement Thou, O God, the hearts together.
O Thou kind Father, God! Gladden our hearts through the fragrance of Thy love. Brighten our eyes through the Light of Thy Guidance. Delight our ears with the melody of Thy Word, and shelter us all in the Stronghold of Thy Providence.
Thou art the Mighty and Powerful, Thou art the Forgiving and Thou art the One Who overlooketh the shortcomings of all mankind.
- Abdu'l-Baha

Please Lord, I pray that you will protect the innocent. I pray that you will protect the world from the chemical and Biological war weapons that the evil one sent even to his own people.
I know that my family members died to take out of command the prior evil one, Hitler whom also used similar means to capture the world. If more involvement had occured before during that time, I know that millions of German, French, British as well as Jewish lives would not have been lost.
I know that celebrities have attempted to prevent war. I discount their opinion because it was celebrities that sided with Hitler till it was too late.

I pray for all peoples of the world.

I pray that Iraqi people and neighboring countries will overthrow the evil dictator before his true colors become known. I pray that all peoples of the world will be able to govern themselves and that there will never need to be oversight of weapons that could cause a world wide plague.

I pray for your intervention, and that it will be no doubt that it was you.

I pray for all the Jewish people and the people of Islamic Middle Eastern origin to prevent discrimination ,
undue harrassment, and injury should there be terrorist attacks intended for innocent people by nonpeaceful people from a religion of peace.

I cry for the innocent. But, only you know who truly is innocent when otherwise innocent people families are paid for a suicide bombing.

I know that none of your religions are blameless. I know that even churches as the Catholoc church whom want peace did nothing to intervene with the last dictator that also hurt his own people, Hitler.

I pray that you will continue to speak to me in parallels, and that I would not be too ignorant to understand.

Let There Be Peace
(Inclusive Version)

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as Creator,
family all are we
Let me walk with my family
In peaceful harmony
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every breath I take
Let this be my joyous vow
To take each moment and live each moment
In peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

A Group Invocation

O Lord of Light and Love, come forth and rule the world
May the Prince of Peace appear and end the warring of the nations
May the reign of Light and Love and Justice be begun
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with us. "

(from "The Externalization of the Hierarchy, Call to a United Act of Service." by Alice Bailey)

My godmother is telling me to pray even though everything is so unsettling. I pray for peace and for the men and women serving and for all the innocent little children. Faith is so important at a time like this.

3/20/2003 10:49

O Thou kind Lord! O Thou Who art generous and merciful! We are servants of Thy threshold and are gathered beneath the sheltering shadow of Thy divine unity. The sun of Thy mercy is shining upon all, and the clouds of Thy bounty shower upon all. Thy gifts encompass all, Thy loving providence sustains all, Thy protection overshadows all, and the glances of Thy favor are cast upon all. O Lord! Grant Thine infinite bestowals, and let the light of Thy guidance shine. Illumine the eyes, gladden the hearts with abiding joy. Confer a new spirit upon all people and bestow upon them eternal life. Unlock the gates of true understanding and let the light of faith shine resplendent. Gather all people beneath the shadow of Thy bounty and cause them to unite in harmony, so that they may become as the rays of one sun, as the waves of one ocean, and as the fruit of one tree. May they drink from the same fountain. May they be refreshed by the same breeze. May they receive illumination from the same source of light. Thou art the Giver, the Merciful, the Omnipotent.

- 'Abdu'l-Baha

Dearest Father, we ask you to let your light of peace shine over your people to bring us all together in harmony and cooperation with one another, all glorifying you and all that you created. We humbly ask you to intercede in this war between the US and Iraq, to place your power between them and us to bring about peace. Help all those involved, especially the innocent. We place our trust in You.

Mary, loving mother, pray for us.
St. Francis, pray for us.
All the angels and saints, pray for us.

Our Father which art in heaven hallowed be thy name the kingdom come thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the glory and the power for ever and ever . In the name of Jesus Christ I pray this.

O, Moon:
Even as you are shine on all people,
so let us have respect and tolerance for all.
Even as you are serene and beautiful,
so let our hearts be peaceful and embrace beautiful kindness.
Even as you are steady in your orbit,
so let us never waiver from what is right.
For you are a reminder to us that there is far more to the universe than human pettiness;
you are an inspiration of hope and perception;
but it is we who must act.
It is the task of humans to work for human justice;
may we not forget this!
Remind us, O Moon,
so we may shun hatred, greed, and violence,
and hold to compassion and truth.
Thank you for hearing my prayer.

3/22/2003 God's Power.

At this time of upheaval(War), all souls of the world need our loving good wishes,pure feelings, prayers and meditations for peace. Human beings are instruments for war and so are also instruments for peace. The most powerful act we can do at this time is to create an atmosphere of peace through our thoughts and vibrations, not only in words. To do this we need God's power. Through our relationship with God we receive Godly virtues that fill the soul with power. It is this that will make our actions elevated and our interactions filled with spirituality. We can then become true instruments of God to serve all souls of the world, regardless of races
ideals or actions, to have the vision towards all as part of our human family, God's children. Our only wish is to uplift all and enable them to experience God's love and true peace. Only then can peace can return to our world.

3/22/2003 00:21

Let us pray for peace in our ever troubled world dear God, Let the wars waged on our lives end and let the Peace and Love you have shown us shine through the sorrows that war brings our families across the earth and let the vengance be yours Lord,In Jesus name we pray to be eternally healed by the stripes of Jesus,Amen

3/22/2003 01:01

Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray for a swift end to this conflict and for all the people and families involved. Help us to liberate these oppressed people to govern themselves and to live without fear. Please direct your angels around all the allied troops to protect and keep them safe and bring them home soon. I ask for protection over my daughter-in-law while she is faithfully serving her country. Help those who hate us now to clear their eyes and hearts and see the truth. Evil can flourish when good men do nothing.
Thank you Lord, for your mercy and love. In Jesus's name, I pray... Amen.

All Wars are unjust, and there are no enemies except in our own heart. United Nations was formed to resolve International Disputes, to avoid Wars, to avoid Human Killings of the Likes of World Wars. But No we Human Beings have failed. Interests matters more than Human Life, Weapons of Mass Destructions is possesed by each and every country and used at descretion. Iraq used it against his enemies, Today US is going to use it against Iraq. The trend will go on.

I pray to God the Almighty - for coming to he help of Humanity - and May He save the Human Beings from the cruelty and hatred and May we learn to live with love and compassion.

In the eyes of God all lives are equally precious not of Americans only.

The Lord gives strength to his people....The Lord blesses his people with peace

May those who are in fear find protection.

May wisdom rise quickly in our hearts and dispel the darkness of ignorance.

May all be safe and sound.

May Love be triumphant.
May Hearts be healed.
May Hands be joined in Peace.
Mote It Be!

3/22/2003 13:24

May all beings of all faiths and creeds join in compassion and mutual respect to bring peace to all. True love and compassion grows with each heart that gives just a little part of itself, so let us forgive everyone that does not follow our own spiritual path and offer all living things our boundless love and compassion. Metta, my friends.

3/22/2003 13:31

May we have peace on earth very very soon. May we stop hurting each other this way. May heaven send us angels for guidance in this very diffucult time.

Help us all to remember that one race is never superior to another..We are all in the same race..Human..If we are Christian we must remember what Jesus taught...Peace..Turn the other Cheek..Justice is ours, Revenge belongs only to God..Do unto others as you would have them do unto you..

All established religions teach respect for others and to love those whom are different from us..Now is the time for us to ban together and to remember this...There is nothing funny about Peace, Love and Understanding!
