Pray for Peace – on the eve of war


“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Jesus Christ

I have used this visualization privately, and in small groups and we have seen blessings come of it.  But it has to be kept up every day, and thus I realized I need to ask more people.  War appears imminent – but hopefully it can at least be mitigated… I’ve been wanting to write up the healing visualization for the Middle East all summer, and the recent escalation of events in Syria prompted me to act.

Frank Laubach, author of Letters of  Modern Mystic, retired in Washington, DC after serving long in the mission field. He was a Christian mystic who believed that practicing the presence of God would do more good for humanity than political and diplomatic schemes devoid of God.

“Prayer at its highest is a two-way conversation-and for me the most important part is listening to God’s replies.”
Frank C. Laubach

During his retirement, Laubach led a prayer group in DC to pray about national and international concerns. He said, “It is uncanny what can happen when you pray regarding world events, but  you have to keep it up every day.”

Years ago, when first reading that quote, I nodded my head in understanding, for I had also seen this “uncanny” response when praying about world events.  In that spirit, I ask you to join us in prayer for peace.

The USA is ready to strike Syria within days… warplanes and warships are now in place…  There is no easy solution to the troubles in the area, except Light, for even if we topple the unpopular Assad regime, it paves the way for Syrian rebels who have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda.

Other nations strongly oppose our decision, and some feel it could even possibly lead to WWIII, something  that Paramhansa Yogananda  predicted. I’d hope to stave that off and see things as healed and mitigated as possible. At least some people will be blessed by our efforts, for no prayer is ever wasted.

If you haven’t kept up with all this – you can simply skim these recent headlines, below, and get the basic picture.

  • War on Syria Imminent, US Won’t Seek UN or NATO Vote

  • Syria crisis: Russia and China step up warning over strike

  • Syria strike due in days, West tells opposition – sources

  • Russian Deputy Premier Calls West ‘Monkey With Hand Grenade’

  • Does the ‘Red Line’ Apply to Syrian Rebels, Too?

  • Syrian rebels pledge loyalty to al-Qaeda

  • Iranian Official: Israel to Be ‘First Victim’ of U.S. Attack on Syria

And so it goes….

For further inspiration, please read this:

“…The only solution for nations—I don’t say for individuals—is to use common sense. The best they can reasonably expect when meeting evil is to control it without adopting its attitudes of anger and hatred…” Swami Kriyananda

Please download and use the one-page visualization, below. And please share this email with others who might be inspired to pray.

God bless you all.

Plain text version:

Visualize the Meditating Christ, sitting in Light high above the lands of the Middle East.

As the Avatar born in that region, may His Infinite Light Bless All Souls NOW

May this Light bless and comfort the hearts of all those grieving over loss of loved ones.


See rays of this Light reaching down to guide and uplift those in leadership positions in the area. May their decisions be touched by Light, wisdom, compassion and right action.


See these rays also reach out to guide leaders in other nations (including the United States, Russia, China and nations of the European Union) in their policies and actions toward the Middle East. May their decisions be lifted above ego, and be guided by wisdom.


See this Light reaching down into the earth and cleansing the area of ages-old war-torn vibrations. May the Light of Peace shine. 


May this Light also shoot up into the heavens to strengthen the forces of Light blessing and guiding our planet NOW. May the forces of Light prevail NOW in any astral battles being fought regarding the Middle East.


May Thy Light of Peace shine in all hearts.
