Prayer for Peace

Updated: Dec 31, 2020

"We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE. We must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

I affirm we all know love

We hold the power and the presence of love

With this presence we

Join our energies together

In an affirmative prayer of peace

Use your imagination and

Envision each of the words

Into sensations of healing

Our intention is to call upon

This powerful meditative community

To focus on peace, unity and justice

On the vision of compassion

On the feeling of unity

On the power of love

Emanate love

Demonstrate compassion

Attest to unity

Know with this intention

Right now we join together in the

Power of love and

Presence of each one of us

We are a healing presence

Soothing to souls in need

I share with you the singing of an Affirmative Prayer by Karen Drucker.

Participants’ Reflections:

  • Your singing is so amazing, just beyond belief.

  • I encourage anyone who has trouble moving from meditation to normal life, to just sit in a chair and just be. It’s a part of moving from one step to another. I’ll have to lie down after this and let go. Helps us move from one place to another.

  • The reading was incredible. Love the song and prayer, and Martin Luther King’s words. I focused on the universal I am. During the meditation, I experienced all life as a huge being and we are all on this being. I could feel how we are all on it, all connected.

  • Thank you for what felt like a lullaby. It was very soothing. My energy field has been disrupted. I was trying to figure out how to participate, how to breathe. You reminded me that singing and humming are soothing.
