I read all of the prayers and love them all, but I was particularly struck by denissa's prayer for Daniel not to be afraid ( I am sure others said this too-hers was the first) and it reminded me of when my Mother was diagnosed with cancer. The only prayer I remember praying over and over was for her not to be afraid. I knew that God's will would be done and I just wanted her to be spared the overwhelming fear of facing death. I pray this too for Daniel and his family and I pray that it is your will that he be restored to his family.

Dear Jesus,

I pray that You keep Daniel safe and that You let his friends and family retain hope. Let him know that You are there and that You love him and are with him. If he doesn't know You I pray that he puts his faith in You today, Lord, as well as his friends and family. Let him trust You always.

God's peace be with Daniel Pearl and with his family. God be with his captors, that they may realize and repent of the wrong they are committing.

2/9/2002 22:56

Oh Lord,
Please, look after Pearl and keep him safe through this really scary ordeal. Bring him safe back to his family. Please give his wife and the rest of his loved ones the strength and the hope they need during this difficult time.

2/10/2002 01:53

Dear Father in Heaven, Please comfort Daniel in his fear, and see to his physical needs. Sustain his wife and family during this time of waiting. Most importantly, soften the hearts of his captors, that his release may take place safely and promptly! In Jesus name we ask. Amen

2/10/2002 07:45

Dear Universe. Please let this man be spared physical pain. Please let him be spared emotional turmoil. Please let his faith be strong and let him know that the world is praying for him. Please let his captors find compassion for him and his family, and let them know that they will receive greater respect by releasing him. Thank you.

2/10/2002 09:13

Please watch over Daniel Pearl. Keep him safe. Let him know that you are with Him...always. God, please watch over his wife, and their unborn baby. Give her strength to get through this. God, please soften the hearts of the kidnappers, so that they will release him unharmed. Ameen.

2/10/2002 16:23

Our Father,
We don't know Daniel's fate.. but you do. Please let your will be done... continue to protect him... and watch over his family in their darkest hour. In Jesus' name,

2/10/2002 19:17

May G-d bless you and keep you.
May G-d's face shine upon you.
May G-d grant you peace and bring you back alive to your loved ones.
My prayers and thoughts are with you.

2/10/2002 22:09

Lord, I pray for Daniel. You have known him since the time he was conceived in his mother's womb. You know his joys, his dreams, his fears, his hopes. You are his Creator and know what he is going through at this very moment.

I pray for his deliverance from his captures. And I pray that he would come to know You, his Messiah, Yeshua ha Mashiach, in a real and life changing way. Reveal Yourself to him, in his understanding, and show him that you have all things under control. You love him so much and want to see him freed to be with his loving, adoring wife and soon to be born child.

Daniel has been a gift to many people and is very loved by them. Even though I don't know him, my heart is so heavy and burdened for this precious man. Please have mercy on him and deliver him.

Lord, please touch his captor's lives and change their hearts. Help them to see the true God of the Universe. Help them to know that you want to be their God, too. All they have ever known is death, hate, and destruction. The enemy of men's souls has blinded them to the truth of Your love and redemption. Reveal Yourself to them, as well, and deliver them from the lies that they have been fed all of their lives.

I pray this in Yeshua ha Mashiach's (Jesus the Messiah's) name.

"Do not be afraid, I am with you"..the key refrain to one of my favorite songs, "You are Mine"..We are all God's children..and every night I pray for Daniel's safe and quick return to his family.

2/12/2002 18:40

Praised be Thou, O Lord my God! This is Thy servant who hath quaffed from the hands of Thy grace the wine of Thy tender mercy, and tasted of the savor of Thy love in Thy days. I beseech Thee, by the embodiments of Thy names whom no grief can hinder from rejoicing in Thy love or from gazing on Thy face, and whom all the hosts of the heedless are powerless to cause to turn aside from the path of Thy pleasure, to supply him with the good things Thou dost possess, and to raise him up to such heights that he will regard the world even as a shadow that vanisheth swifter than the twinkling of an eye.

Keep him safe also, O my God, by the power of Thine immeasurable majesty, from all that Thou abhorrest. Thou art, verily, his Lord and the Lord of all worlds.

- Bahá'u'lláh

May all beings be happy and have the causes of happiness.
May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May all beings never be separated from the great joy beyond suffering.
May they remain in great equanimity beyond attachment or aversion.

2/13/2002 15:51

Dear God, Goddess, all that is and will be, send your love and light to your messenger of peace, Daniel Pearl, in the Lion's Den. May you bless him and open the hearts of his captors to release him and better express the meaning of love and light through his release and send comfort and relief to his wife and unborn child. I feel such love for them myself and compassion as I have never felt and this surprises me. Daniel is a real Pearl to be admired for his courage to go to Pakistan and cover a dangerous assignment in a dangerous part of the universe. Please protect him and return him alive and well to his home and family and the extended family that love him from afar including his colleagues at the Wall Street Journal. We love hime and wish him well. Help him feel the love and light and good will sent his way. You are the light of the world, we ask your guidance and love for peace in our world. May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in thy sight, Oh Lord our Rock and our Redeemer. May our prayer circle grow and enfold him with love, Amen

2/21/2002 18:56

Please greet your son Daniel as he is at Heaven's door, as I have just heard he has been killed. God Bless you Daniel and God Bless your wife and unborn son. They will forever be in my prayers.
