The National Day of Prayer, observed every first Thursday in May since 1952, is a great time to really stop and contemplate the power of prayer individually and collectively. Prayer may mean different things to different people, but expressions of gratitude, forgiveness, joy, and love allow humanity to reach beyond self toward a greater good. This is important in a world where the constant bombardment of bad news can invite defeat. Each of us is a shining ray of hope in the dark, and bringing everyone together in unity through prayer can and will expel the horrors of death and destruction. I wanted to share with you The Christian Science Monitor article about this important day. Even though this day of prayer was last week, we can continue to be inspired to pray for the world and our fellow man.
