Pray for creativity
Pray for tolerance
Pray for feeling minds
Pray for insight
Pray for compassion
When one part of our society suffers we all suffer.
We are afterall inextricably linked. We are one.
Judgement without kindness is brutalising.
Intolerance without thought is destructive.
Criticism without knowledge is devastating.
Pray for courage
Pray for clarity
Pray for peace
Pray for Justice for All
Pray for curiosity
If you do not like something in someone -
dig deeper, learn more about that person.
Examine your own heart. What you do not like
about that person might be what you do not like about yourself.
Pray for sanity within this insanity
Pray for decency to prevail
Pray for honour to return
Pray for the the courage to be kind
And above all pray for love.
