for Lent 2007
for Planetary Healing
Divine energy, flowing from the Source,
permeates all that is. This fact is the basis for our belief in the communion
of saints. Through this communion we can connect with
the “soul” of the other through
prayer. Our thoughts, healing energy and explicit
prayers can and do effect the other. At this time, it is imperative
that we remember that the other includes the land and
the people of Iraq. In the midst of chaos, let us pray with confidence
that peace will be brought to that land, and that all persons
will be open to the Spirit who brings peace and harmony.
First, with reverence and devotion, prepare yourself by
invoking the loving presence of God and the Cosmic Christ who
are within you, in your circle or community gathered.
Know that God is the healer and we are God’s
Ask for the Light of Divine Love to be with you and to
flow through you.
Visualize Earth. (It is helpful to have
a globe or a picture of Earth available.)
Observe the physical aspects of Earth. Imagine
Earth surrounded by white light. Focus on Iraq and see
Iraq filled with harmony and light. Send healing light
to the lakes, rivers and streams of Iraq. See divine light
nourishing the plants and grasses and trees of Iraq. Send
life force flowing to all of the many creatures of Iraq.
Visualize light and love flowing through the many
mosques and churches of Iraq. See the light of God shining
forth through all religions, harmonizing their efforts and guiding
their members to the highest Light.
Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes concentrating on
sending healing power to Iraq.
At the end of the time, pass the globe or picture
of Earth around the circle and, in silence, place your hand on
the Middle East.
And finally pray:
of the living God,
to send your healing light to Iraq.
we cannot explain how this happens
believe in faith that your power and light can do all things.
