We pray for a world where the children are always safe.
A world where no one could find it in their heart to ever
harm even a hair on their beautiful heads.
We pray for a world where violence has been transformed
by a Love and a Light that is Holy and Divine and protects
not only the youngest, but all of God’s Children everywhere.
In mosques, in churches, in temples, in salons, on the streets,
in homes, in the schools … Everywhere.
We pray for a world where no soul is so wounded that they cannot
see that the darkness in their mind is not their own holy truth
and they will always ask for help before they act out in the world.
We pray for a world where a mother and father can send their
children out of the home with confidence and joy knowing that
they will always be safe and happy and well.
Until that world exists, let us pray to remember that God does not
allow harm or cause suffering or make sickness of minds and hearts.
Let us remember that God’s only purpose is to carry us through these tragic times as He enfold us in His Love and comforts us and gives us the strength to get through it.
Let us pray for all of us affected by the tragedy in Connecticut that God’s Light can be allowed to shine through all the sad and angry hearts and bring healing and a better way on behalf of those children and their families so they have not died in vain, but as holy heroes whose passing has changed the world forever making it a place of hope instead of hopelessness, of safety instead of danger and of joy instead of joylessness.
Let us pray that God’s forgiveness will enter our hearts so a new way of thinking can transform us and make it less likely that this will ever happen again. Let us use this experience as an opportunity to forgive someone in our lives. Let us allow that decision to forgive to be our symbol and our intention for a world where not one hair on one child can ever be harmed again.
Let us not allow ourselves to be governed by fear because of this, for that will only keep us open to more suffering of the same nature. Now let us walk in light and trust in God and in the God energy within each of us knowing that this is what will keep us and ours safe from now on.
We pray to remember that this new transformed and transcended world we desire begins with us. Each time that we choose to be kind to someone is helpful to God and creates a moment where a new seed is planted and a new thought sends healing energy rippling out into the world. God needs His teachers and His helpers now more than ever. Let those teachers and helpers be us.
Now let us lay aside our fear and thank God for His presence in our hearts. God can’t stop the insanity because we are His powerful creations who have a will of our own. But we can, one grateful and compassionate heart and act at a time, be instruments and channels for His healing in the world.
