Today, September 11, 2014 is the Daily Word’s World Day of Prayer. It is also the anniversary of the tragedy of the 9/11 hate fueled attack on the twin towers in NYC in 2001. That memory will stay with me forever. Thousands perished because of the misunderstanding and misuse of religion. Religious zealots of EVERY persuasion are reckless and dangerous. No matter if they are Islamic, Christian, Amish or Hare Krishna. We are all children of ONE God. It is time we acted accordingly.

World Day of Prayer
I am the light of the world. I let my light shine.
Divine Light is the presence and power of God—the activity of God. I am illumined by Divine Light. I claim my spiritual nature and let my light shine.
Even in the midst of mundane daily tasks, even in the midst of difficulty or sorrow, even in the midst of a rapidly changing world, the light of God shines brightly in me.
Through prayer, I turn on the light within. The moment I turn toward God, the wisdom, love, life, and peace of God fill my being. The moment I connect with Spirit, light streams forth from within. I allow the light of God to illumine my thoughts, inspire my words, and empower my actions. The light of God shines brightly in me.
You are the light of the world … let your light shine.
