Daily Lift #238

Pray For Peace

What are you doing for peace? We can't always find magical solutions ourselves that will transform former adversaries into being great friends. But we can always pray for peace.

We can pray to find peace in our own lives. We can ask our loving Father and powerful King, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, to help us have harmonious relationships with others.

We can pray to the Almighty to help specific people we know who are involved in a quarrel to bury the hatchet and smoke a peace pipe together, metaphorically of course.

We can pray to the Almighty for peace for our People and for all the nations of the world.

Every prayer has some effect. Every prayer elevates us spiritually. Every prayer connects us with the Creator of the universe and helps us gain a much more expansive perspective.

(from Rabbi Zelig Pliskin's book: Harmony with Others, p.40, www.artscroll.com)
