5 Prayerful Ways to Call for Peace, Protest Injustice

Spinning Your Gold: Words that Open Hearts and Inspire Actions

“Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.” -Soren Kierkegaard

After months of COVID-19 self-quarantine and days of civil unrest, do you find that:

Your body is drained.
Your heart is aching.
Your mind is blown.
Your spirit is swirling.

What can you do to be a part of today’s solution and be changed?

How can you, as Mohandas Gandhi suggests, “Be the change you  wish to see?”

Like many, you might not be able to march in the streets to protest. Yet, your heart seeks to walk for justice, peace, and the healing of racism.

With Number Five representing a change in numerology, here are five inspired steps you can now take to shift the negative energy to positive energy:

1. Join a mindful prayer community- You’re invited to my online Facebook event, WAVE-Praying Together Matters, to pause and pray each day from June 4 to July 4—Independence Day in the USA.

2. Pray- In this month-long “event,” you’re called to set the alarm to different times each day and pray, however, and to whomever. What’s essential is that you enter your private, sacred, and silent space. 
That simple. That powerful. 
RSVP now to WAVE-Praying Together Matters. (Women as Visionaries Everywhere & Friends)

3. Write a prayer- Even if you don’t think you’re a writer, your thoughts are things. They can become a prayer. Put them on paper. Share that positivity for a brighter future.

4. Post a prayer-full memeRemember Meister Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom, “If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough.” On social media, share gratitude (or peace) memes and quotes for how you see the world; this is expressing robust advance appreciation and gratitude. You don’t have to wait for the good to appear. See it happening now. Use the hashtag #PrayingTogetherMatters.

5. Be the prayer. Be the light. - As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fiercely and non-violently demonstrated in his life, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Together, we can do this, let us pray.



  1. What a beautiful post and so prevalent. My answers to top questions are yes, unfortunately. I was thinking this yesterday, my mind has been blown. So for me I sat down with my divine team in a way I hadn't before. I said to myself and to them, I need a different way to pray. I had my divine team come through for me this morning. June is going to be a really interesting month.

    1. As always, we seem to be in Sync. Hope you can join us for the event and add yoru energy. Would weclome you being a co-host--that means you share the event and could post as an admin...your prayers, memes, quotes. Let's chat soon! Namaste

  2. A lovely post, Lore. I'm finding solace in action, and in sleeping a lot! The back decks I've just built are meant to be an oasis of space and calm for me and my friends, where we can chat and still stay physically distant. I'm also reaching out to Black friends to ask them to teach me what I need to know about their struggles and triumphs. All the best, Lore!

    1. Thanks, Mary Carol. Always good to hear from you in Nova Scotia and I am inspired by your does look like an oasis. Perhaps one day we will sit outside and finally chat face-to-face. Your idea to reach out to Black freinds is on my to-do list now. Hugs xoxo

  3. Beautiful post, Lore. Thank you for what you are offering in this time of such great change.

    1. Ahh, thank you for your kind words. And the "event" of Praying Together Matters are helping me stay grounded and positive as there's so much negativity that seeks to distract me. Hpope you've added your special energies to the "event." Namaste~

  4. A wonderful post,Lore, on my favorite practice when I feel I need support - prayer.

    I've always had a practice of praying in the morning and then again before bedtime and I feel that has helped me stay grounded and focused during the grueling 2 month lockdown which was one of the most stringent in the world.

    1. I appreciate that you are a prayerr-full woman, Vatsala. Is yor lockdown still very strict? It's a free-for-all here in FL where we had the highest numbers of new CV19 cases...yet the Governor is allowing all businesses to reopen in Phase 2 this weekend.
      My mom and are still self-quarantining after 95 days..that's 3 months, 3 days or Week 15.

  5. I love this. Everyone can pray and I can attest to the fact that it does make a difference.

    1. Thank you, Barb! And I'm saying a greatidue prayer that all is now well with you after your mold story.
