Please pass this message on to everyone you know who would be interested. The call has gone out once again. The question is -- How do we respond?
Political analysts agree that something must be done to stabilize this
potentially catastrophic situation.
How do we, as people of God, respond?
These are questions we must all answer, not only for ourselves but for the
world we live in.
Do we have the power to effect change and bring love where hatred seems to reign?
Can we become instruments of peace?
The answer is YES!
In the last four months millions of people gathered in churches, in homes and as individuals to pray for peace:
February. . .
Prayer for Peace in Iraq
Hundreds of thousands of people around the world participated in two prayer vigils, calling everyone committed to peace to focus their intent on a peaceful solution to this potential tragedy. The people of Iraq were overjoyed to know that so many people around the world prayed with them.
One week later. . .
Prayer for Peace in Northern Ireland Hundreds of thousands of people around the world prayed for a peaceful solution to the hatred that has defined this country for decades.
"The Great Experiment"
Though the scientific data has yet to be available, millions of people around the the world felt a dramatic shift toward peace, a shift that is having a dramatic impact on the planet we inhabit.
Prayer for Peace in the Middle East
Two-hundred Jews, Christians and Muslims gathered on a hill overlooking the old city of Jerusalem while millions around the world joined them in prayer.
All of these peace vigils asked the same question:
Can we change the world in an instant, simply by changing our minds about the world?
I believe the answer is yes.
The Next Question:
Do we have access to a weapon that is a thousand times more powerful than any nuclear bomb ever made?
The Sikh Prayer for Peace says:
Let's call this weapon: "A New-Clear Reaction" Definition:
When I was in Baghdad and Belfast this past February I experienced a sense of clarity and commitment that I have never felt before. I was invited to sing "The Peace Concert" in both these troubled cities, calling upon music and prayer to help transform hatred into love. But the clarity I felt did not come from me alone. I felt that we were one mind -- all the people who prayed for peace while I sang. This feeling was even more profound on April 23rd during "The Great Experiment." The prayers of millions of people seemed to fall like rain all around us, and everyone who participated in the event at the United Nations Church Center felt the vast power of that prayer.
Recently I was told that there is a continual rehearsal taking place at the Pentagon. Generals and war experts constantly review the hundreds of possible ways a nuclear war could begin. In 80% of these scenarios, the Third World War is triggered by either India or Pakistan achieving nuclear capability. If the recent testing of nuclear bombs in these countries is enough to terrify these men and women, how much should we be motivated to respond?
Join us in this New-Clear Reaction.
Mark July 5 on your calender and enlist your friends. Together we can put an end to hatred and war forever. Millions of people will be at your side in this great quest. Our prayers are ready to fall like healing rain over a battlefield.
May Peace Prevail on Earth,
James Twyman (June 23, 1998)
P.S. It is important to note that our goal is to join with all the millions of people in India and Pakistan who are already praying for peace. Through this meditation we are building a support system for everyone in this region dedicated to the ideal that inspired this vigil. This is not about one person, nor is it about one group of people, no matter how dedicated. It is about the unity of all humanity bound together by the single thread of holiness and love.
