A Holiday Prayer Great Spirit of the universe, Embrace us with your love, Upon every corner of our world, A world turned upside down, Lost in greed, Suffering from wars, A great pain caused by, Indifference to those countless suffering from, Poverty, Hunger, No water, Lack of medicine, A safe dwelling place, But nothing that the wealth of nations, Can not overcome, If they only had the moral willpower, To do so, Great Spirit of the universe, Touch the hearts of men, Our hearts, Hearts that suffer, Souls that have suffered for too long,

Great Spirit of the universe, Touch our hearts, And souls too, Touch us with that infinite love, That dwells only in you, That will be enough, To heal the hatred, To heal the sick, To heal those endless lost souls, Who have given up on life, And their dreams vanished, Believing that you have forgotten them, Great Spirit of the universe, I believe that you have not forgotten us, I believe, In your infinite wisdom, On your terms you will act, And there are things we can not understand, Great Spirit of the universe, Give us the strength and patience, To endure, To prevail, To believe again, In the power of your love,

In the inheritance of our birthright, Great Spirit of the universe, Give us strength, To believe in us, In our holy powers within, In the sanctity of one human family, One world, One race, One religion, Which is to do good, Loving one another, Great Spirit of the universe, Open our spiritual eyes, Our eternal powers within, Which you have given, Every one born on Earth, That we may heal ourselves, Taking away the greed of the ego, The madness, The violence, The hurt in our souls, Great Spirit of the universe, I believe in you, I believe in your righteousness,

In your love for us, I believe, In your promises, To humanity, That the meek shall inherit the Earth, That the peacemakers, Shall be called the children of God, Great Spirit of the universe, I beg of you, In this prayer, We need your help more than ever, Please discuss our plight, With your Heavenly Council of The Elders, Send to Earth, The Seven Powers of Your Holiness, And Archangel Michael too, To heal, To protect, To save, Us from our own destruction, Our apparent demise, And death, Great Spirit of the universe, I thank you,

For the air that I breathe, Every day when I awake, Thank you for my family, For my parents, For my humble home, For the poems, You have inspired in me, Great Spirit of the universe, As for myself, I ask for nothing, For your love that dwells in my heart, Sustains me, Fulfilling all my wishes and hopes, Great Spirit of the universe, My only wish, Is for an everlasting peace on Earth, That we may learn forever, To love one another, To help each one, To develop our great potentials, To stop the violence, The suffering, But especially for the children, Who are too young to understand,

Why the world does not care about them, I care my Lord, And so do billions of good souls, Who believe, Believe, Believe, In You, In love, Love, Love!
