Keeping Peace in Uncertain Times
With recent events and violence in all parts of the world, it is important to keep peace and think good thoughts. Many of us feel uneasy about recent events. Thinking positive thoughts, praying and meditation can help to keep peace. Also, just smiling at a stranger can make a difference. During these uncertain times, try not to take things for granted, be friendly to others. Give them a hug if you need to. Pay it forward. Anything helps. If we take the time to put positive energy out there, we can make a world of difference.
Here is a prayer:
~Just for today,
I will let go of anger.
Just for today, I will let go of worry.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.~
Another Prayer for Peace: by Jaime Fitzpatrick
~Please grant me peace,
Help me not to take my life or loved ones for granted.
Allow me to be kind & considerate to others,
Help me to slow down and take deep breaths.
Help me to be patient and not get wrapped in greed and competition.
Allow me to be thankful of the dawning of a new day.
With this I ask you, Amen……….~
