Prayerful Peace

In my own experience, I find prayer a powerful tool, and certainly hospital studies bear that out. But how each of us defines prayer is different. And I’ve come to believe it is not the definition of prayer that determines its efficacy, but merely the doing of it.

Some of us may not call it prayer when we hold someone in our hearts, but I no longer believe, and I know, this is my understanding, that prayer requires a deity to receive the plea or thank you. Prayer is an action. We pray or we don’t. How you pray and how I pray will be different no matter what our religious tradition…

But I’ve also come to believe it is not only good for the one prayed for but also the one praying… my thoughts, understandings, beliefs keep evolving. In the meantime, I hold you and our precious world in my heart and I will continue to pray for all of us. Peace be with you. Peace be with us all.
