A Prayer for Peace in New Mexico

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.21.16

During the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions a number of individuals held private meditations and prayers for peace and nonviolence in our world. Below, from New Mexico, is Paul Schmitt’s prayer and invitation to join him throughout the week.

Dear friends,
Today marks the start of Campaign Nonviolence Week of Action. There will be over 650 actions taking place throughout the country demonstrating our need to come together and say we will no longer participate in harming ourselves and our mother earth. We will aspire to peace and brotherhood with every man, woman and child on this planet. We recognize our stewardship to our land, our skies and our seas.  We pledge our respect to every living creature. I am asking to join us by remembering that this begins with each of us. Please take one hour this week to quiet your minds. Breathe.  Listen and feel your breath. Be at peace. Remember that we are one and the same. Peace to you all!

– Paul
