A Prayer for World Peace

I found this prayer for world peace particularly poignant. It is from Ernest Holmes:

“I know there is but One Mind, which is the mind of God, in which all people live and move and have their being.

I know there is a divine pattern for humanity and within this pattern there is infinite harmony and peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness.

Thus harmony, peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness are experienced by all.

I know there will be a free interchange of ideas, of cultures, of spiritual concepts, of ethics, of educational systems and scientific discoveries–for all good belongs to all alike.

I know that, because Divine Mind has created us all we are bound together in one infinite and perfect Unity.

I know that all people and nations will remain individual but unified for the common purpose of promoting peace, happiness, harmony and prosperity.

I know that deep within each person the Divine Pattern of perfect peace is already implanted.

I now declare that in each person and in the leaders of thought everywhere this Divine Pattern moves into action and form, to the end that all nations and all people will live together in peace, harmony and prosperity forever.”

And so it is.

It all starts with a belief.
