Prayer For New Life
Be my redeemer, my internal teacher, my divine physician.
Thank You for Your presence in my life.
I surrender to You all I am, all I think, all I feel, and all I have.
I recognize in this moment that Yours is the power to heal and make whole.
You who have the power to work miracles, You who rule time and space, please take me in Your arms and hold me.
Dear Lord, please lift me up and heal me.
Cast out of my mind all thoughts that are not of You.
Cast out of me all harsh and critical nature.
Cast out of me all violence and all anger.
Cast out of me all demons from my past.
For I would be made new.
I wish to walk so close to You that we might be as one.
I ask for new life, new mind, new body, new spirit.
Dear God, please come into me and release me from this pain.

What would your vision of the perfect world look like? Creating a vision is a very important step if we are going to make any changes. What would make our planet the best it could be? Seeing the planet as healthy? People living peacefully? Much less violence? What can you do you help facilitate this vision? Be an idealist. Go ahead, its OK. What have we got to lose except fear or lack of hope for the future?
*I posted the following this morning on a web site filled with negative comments, bigotry and ignorance:
If we are ever going to abolish the “us and them” mentality, we must make diplomacy to the world a priority, and I’m grateful that we have someone who the world respects and appreciates as our leader.
If ever we are going to establish peace in our world, we must find peace within, first and foremost. If you want to see change, look within. What can you do today that will make our world a better place? Go to a park and pick up trash, make sure that you are doing everything you can as an individual by paying your bills, using energy wisely, loving your neighbor, and recycling.
We need to be grateful that we finally have a president that represents our global world in his experience of life. We live in the greatest country, where we not only can speak our mind, but where we have the most wonderful diversity culturally of every nation, spiritual tradition and creed. When we fully embrace this concept, when we realize that name calling, and violence don’t solve anything, then we will change our lives, our communities, our nation and the world. Spirit Of Peace, Renew Our World
Peace is first to be found within, then expressed as us, with and through others. Peace is a living, vibrant presence that animates us, our partnerships, our frendships, our organizations, and our communities. We are the peace. We anchor peace, here and now, in and through our very lives. Peace must be enshrined in our hearts. Inspired by ‘Peace In Our Lifetime. Insights from the World’s Peacemakers’ by Susan Skog

We are peacemakers, expressing God’s love in the world.
Long ago, a man called Johnny Appleseed roamed the wilderness of early America, sowing seeds that grew into apple trees that nourished a young nation. His gentle and kind nature, his generosity and vision, influenced generations.
In our day-to-day contacts with others, we also sow seeds–seeds of love, peace, and understanding. Centering ourselves in God’s loving presence, we become ambassadors of peace as we move through the activities of our day.
As we share and express love to others, we spread peace in the world. By demonstrating compassion, wisdom, and understanding, we sow the seeds of peace wherever we go, with whomever we meet.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”–Matthew 5:9
On July 4th we can not only celebrate the independence of our country, we can also celebrate our own personal independence from negative influences, from the bombardments of the noise of the world. We can celebrate the fireworks of freedom and be liberated from the slavery of negativity and the stress that enters through television, news and disturbing situations. We can only find that liberation through discovery of inner peace and moments of stillness. We can turn off the outer world, with all its violence, war and hatred. We can turn off the constant noise of those who want to distract us from pursuing inner peace. We make the choice for our personal independence. Every day, every moment, we make the choice of what we will have as the focus of our attention. There are fireworks and true freedom in stillness, in quiet, in allowing peace to move through our thoughts and our bodies, healing us of fear and frustration, of sadness and the despair that is of the world.
As we celebrate Independence Day, let us celebrate inner peace, let us celebrate being compassionate, forgiving, loving individuals. Let us celebrate being free of the bondage of negative influences and choose true liberation, that only comes from the fireworks of inner stillness and peace.
Invite peace to take root in your heart and mind by loving well. Spend as much time as possible focusing on what you love and what gives you hope. Put your focus on what makes you absolutely energized with a feeling of contentment, doing what you love to do most, playing music, reading something inspirational, walking in the woods, getting a massage, whatever it is, just make it a priorty to bring peace in your life.
Believe in the absolute best for yourself and those you love. If we truly want peace in the world, we must find it within our own lives, our own hearts. Only you know what works best for you. Don’t neglect your souls need to have inner peace. Don’t neglect your souls need to have a good time and enjoy this precious life, this precious day, this precious moment.
Life is Fragile. Appreciate its complexities. Learn, learn, learn, from the heights and the depths of life. Allow the soul to breathe.
Forgive. Forgive yourself for all your faults. Forgive anyone who has ever hurt you, insulted you, or caused your pain. Let it go. Just let it go for God’s sake.
Time is precious. Don’t get lost in worldly distractions that bombard us daily. Stop. Notice, just for a moment. Say thanks. Breathe and relax.
Every moment is precious if we greet it as a friend, not a foe. Where there is darkness, there is light. Seek the light with everything that is in you. It doesn’t just happen…seek it. Find it. It is right there in this moment.
“Can we try to see the God in one another, even our enemies? What we focus on, what we dream for the planet will spread across the earth. Are you investing in joy and beauty for yourself and those around you? Do yourself and the world a favor, please let go of warlike thoughts, behaviors, and drama. Let’s choose love. When enough people love fiercly, it simply isn’t possible for darkness, hate, or fear to exist.”

The way to transform violence is the energy of love, tolerance, compassion, understanding, and seeing God in everyone, no matter what their religious, political or social background is. When we hate someone or something, we generate that energy. When we see the violent with compassion, for example, we break the cycle of violence with compassion, knowing that person is
suffering and in pain. Therefore, generate love!
