Prayer for peace

This is a prayer forwarded to me by a friend in Dallas - also an artist.
Thought I would share it with all of you as we look for comfort and answers.

< To All--
 In this time of unspeakable human tragedy--in the wake of our individual and
collective confusion, fear, and numbness-in the midst of our well of tears
where our deepest grief is stirred, may we join our hearts in a web of prayer
and meditation.
 
 My offering at this moment:
 
 We ask that those whose lives have been forever altered by the violence and
tragedy of today and of all the yesterdays, be given and be able to receive
the strength, support and faith to sustain them. May they not feel alone,
but know that their true connection to their Souuce of Life is never
severed.
 
 We ask that those who govern be open to higher levels of awareness, wisdom,
compassion, and strength to lead in this new world. May they (and we) seek
new solutions--solutions that emanate from a different level of awareness
than the one that has led to today's horrors.
 
 And may each of us be called to remember once again who we truly are and
what the purpose of our life here upon earth is. May we learn to put to rest
whatever creates the war within us, and find compassion for ourselves, and
all the souls of this world.
 
 Blessings to each of you. >>
