#16/100 Reasons I Blog4Peace/ Peace Prayers

 I read a sign held by a Peace activist that has stuck in my mind, I had hoped to find the picture somewhere but did not. So I tried making one. 


I found all these prayers looking around at  http://www.care2.com/greenliving/ 
 It does not seem to matter what religion you are or are not. 
Having Peace in our lives is what we all know we need.

There is something about the cadence, the rhythm, and the grounded energy of prayers like these that make us feel more peaceful just by reading them. 
Share these beautiful Native American prayers for peace with your friends.

Let Us Know Peace
Let us know peace.
For as long as the moon shall rise,
For as long as the rivers shall flow,
For as long as the sun will shine,
For as long as the grass shall grow,
Let us know peace. 

O Great Spirit of our Ancestors,
I raise my pipe to you, to your messengers the four winds, and to Mother Earth who provides for your children. 
Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect, and to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace in mind. 
Let us learn to share all the good things that you provide for us on this Earth.
 
Buddhist prayers 
May all beings everywhere plagued
with sufferings of body and mind
quickly be freed from their illnesses.
May those frightened cease to be afraid,
and may those bound be free.
May the powerless find power,
and may people think of befriending
one another.
May those who find themselves in trackless,
fearful wilderness–
the children, the aged,
the unprotected–
be guarded by beneficial celestials,
and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.

Evoking the presence of the great compassion, let us fill our hearts with our own compassion–towards ourselves and towards all living beings.
Let us pray that all living beings realize that they are all brothers and sisters, all nourished from the same source of life.

We are all children of the Great Spirit, we all belong
to Mother Earth. Our planet is in great trouble and
if we keep carrying old grudges and do not work
together, we will all die.
–Chief Seattle

Grandfather,
Look at our brokenness.
We know that in all creation
Only the human family
Has strayed from the Sacred Way.
We know that we are the ones
who are divided
And we are the ones
who must come back together
to walk in the Sacred Way.
Grandfather,
Sacred One,
Teach us love, compassion, and honor
that we may heal the earth
and heal each other.
–Objibway people of Canada
 as always I will pray...
May Peace and Blessing be upon You!
