We have been assured that "wherever two or more are gathered" that Christ is in the midst of them. Can you imagine how powerful that Christ presence can be when there are millions of people joining together throughout the day to pray for peace, love and harmony in the world?
I invite you to set aside time during the day on the 13th to pray--whether it's for a few minutes or for an hour. It doesn't matter where you are, at work or at home; you can close your eyes for a few moments of prayer. No matter what your faith may be--whether it's Christian, Muslim, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism or whatever--pray or meditate according to your tradition.
Here is a link to the web site for Unity's World Day of Prayer: http://www.worlddayofprayer.org/ On the web site you will find: a place to list the people that you would like put on a prayer list; a schedule of events being held at Unity Village in Missouri during the day on September 13; Unity churches around the world that will be holding special events for World Day of Prayer; live streaming video of the events of the day as they unfold. You can call Unity Village directly for more information at 816-524-3550.
We invite you to join the rest of us in affirming:
We are peacemakers, one in the love of God. With hearts united,we establish harmony and peace in our lives and in the world.
And so it is. Amen.
