When we pray we heal ourselves and those around us. It is an act of courage to pray – especially for others. When we pray we can truly effect change in the world around us. At times, we feel helpless and unable to stop the violence and discord around us. We can loss hope. We can turn depressed or even angry. However, we need not. Instead,we must be the change the world needs. Start with prayer for others. Start with simple words of thanksgiving for those you love, those you work with and for those who have no one to pray for them. And, remember, as you pray for others the graces you pray for them are also granted to you! Prayer heals our world – please do it frequently each day!
