First Prayer Sunday: Let’s Make Peace!

Collective Prayer Sunday!

I’m not great at figuring out times around the world but I know it’s way into Sunday already in many places (are some on Monday now???) and we just entered Sunday in my time zone so I just want to remind everyone this is the first Sunday for us to join in praying for peace.  If you can, please find a minimum of 10 minutes somewhere between 7 and 11:59 p.m. in your time zone to pray, meditate, chant, cast, etc. for peace.  I’ve suggested the lovingkindness chant:

May the Earth be filled with lovingkindness

May she be well

May she be peaceful and at ease

May she be happy

But say your own prayer, do a meditation, repeat another chant, send Reiki — whatever feels to you like the way you want to pray for peace.  Just 10 minutes.  If you can spend more time or form a group to chant or pray together for more than 10 minutes on some regular basis on Sunday evenings, that would be wonderful!  We can make a difference!  Spread the word.  Tell me in the comments on the Collective Prayer Sundays page that you’re taking part.  Make comments on this post if you want to tell about your experience of praying for peace.

  1. As a Christian I love the idea that people of any belief are spending time with the sole intension of praying for peace.
    World peace would be lovely but maybe first baby steps how about in thr home in the neighbourhood In the town village street block around us. Etc etc

    • I believe in this possibility (lots about why is in the posts listed at the bottom of this post), but everyone has to follow their own beliefs and pray as they wish.

  2. Reblogged this on The Enchanting Adventure and commented:
    My blogging friend Leigh from Notes From the Bluegrass has created a lovely idea of group prayer every Sunday evening. This begins tonight and want to share it with any of you that might be inclined to join in.
    For all of you Father’s out there, Happy Father’s Day!
    Peace to you all, Karen
