Connecting the World in Peace Through Prayer…

When we asked  “What Do You Do To Transform Fear?  ( Using Automatic Writing To Release Fear) 110 of you shared your tools and techniques.

And many of you told us of the power of prayer…

The following 12 Prayers for Peace represent Major Religions around the World.

Today these prayers (or longer versions) are shared twice a day by the Members of The World Community of Saint Francis, the first inter-religious order of men and women dedicated to following the example of the St. Francis of Assisi.

no one is defeated.

Blessed be the Peacemakers,
for they are called the Children of God.

    I really enjoyed reading all the different prayers. All contained beautiful messages and I found it interesting that one particularly resonated with me. The Zoroastrian prayer seemed to sum it all up. If we all would choose understanding, generosity, trust and truth over ignorance, indifference, contempt and falsehood, what a world we would make!!!!!

  4. Hi guys, I`m a christian and I think the greatest and the best prayer of all is the prayer of the christian. Why? because its close to impossible for us to do this things with our own mind and own strength,we can ONLY do this with a support from not finite or INFINITE SOURCE,WHO is he?. I surely know that YOU know HIM either by MIND or by WHOLE HEART and SOUL.The question is “WHY DOES GOD COMMANDED US TO DO GOOD TO THOSE WHO HATES US?” and “BLESSED THOSE WHO CURSE US?, and PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ABUSE US?”, “IS HE THE ALMIGHTY, ALL KNOWING , OMNIPOTENT AND ETERNAL GOD who knows the all?” the answer is ABSOLUTELY YES!
    SO why does he commanded us such impossible task If he already know that Its impossible for us?.
    The answer is find on the HOLY BIBLE SPECIALY the NEW TESTAMENT/NEW COVENANT.
    I`m difinitely sure that If you just keep your heart and mind open in reading the holy scriptures you will surely FIND THE ULTIMATE ANSWER FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL NEEDS.
    Thanks and GOD BLESS this site more.
