On a personal level…I was surprised by a unique benefit I experience as an activist pray-er. In the past when I would look at the news, read the paper, etc. I used to think the world was “going to hell.” NOW, my whole worldview has changed! I see these problems, no matter how serious, as temporary situations and I know that “WE will change this”. I imagine that saying, and feeling the prayers not only enlightening those prayed for, but I too am uplifted. My beliefs about humanity and the future of the world have changed. I feel that it is time for all of us – the pray-ers/activists, the Saints, the Spiritual Sages – to join together, pray and materialize that which Christ spoke of in the Lord’s Prayer: That God’s “will be done (here) on earth as it is in heaven.” Amen to that!
