The Power of Prayer



There are so many things happening on the planet right now, we are evolving and transforming, but every change brings challenges and sometimes friction and pain. There are so many ways of showing up and do something, like supporting financially different organizations, using social media as a tool for creating awareness, volunteering and helping the ones in need, protesting peacefully for our rights, staying loyal to our values, showing more compassion and empathy to others, sticking to your daily spiritual practice, etc. There's so much work to do, but there's something that we can do everyday and at any moment: we can pray. Prayers are one of the most powerful ways of showing up for others, prayers create a strong web of energy that destroy all obstacles. Prayers are powerful tools for healing and transformation. Prayers connect us with the Divine. This month, I am sharing with you this beautiful prayer that I found and that I have been repeating every day:

Infinite Spirit, when I pray each day for shelter for the homeless,

let me not ignore the pet without a home;

As I ask protection for those in areas of turmoil and unrest,

let me not forget endangered species of life;

When I pray that the hungry be fed,

let me be mindful that all God's creatures

have need of sustenance;

As I ask Divine assistance for those afflicted by fire,

flood, earthquake, storm or drought,

let me remember that this includes every living thing;

In seeking miracle cures for human disease,

may I also speak for the well-being of the planet itself.

Let the words of my mouth,

the meditations of my heart

and the actions of my life be as one,

that I may live each day in harmony

with Mother Earth. Amen.
