The day after Halloween, November 1st, is a time to turn attention to those who have inspired us by their unselfish actions. Here is a prayer for quiet reflection on the lives of saints who've come before us. Take some moments after reading to sit in stillness before going on with your day.
I like to pray at the beginning of my meditations for both inspiration and to set a positive mood to the time in silence. Contemplation on the achievements of saints is surely one way to uplift one's mind, and be receptive to the insights meditation has to offer.
"In times of need we turn for strength
To those who've come before our days
That their unseen presence might
Come to us as guiding rays.
We need the voice of bygone times
In our present plight for peace
May the saints who lived for all
Bless us each in their outreach.
Continue to embrace our world
Hold us in your constant love
Dear holy ones in heaven's sight
Emblazon our hearts from up above.
Remind us in your quiet ways
That we can reach the worthwhile goal
World peace will reign forever on
With kindness shown to one and all!"
