A Time for Prayer

13 Jan

TRACY. PRAYER.This is a Time for Prayer

This is a time for prayer

  • A prayer that the cataracts now clouding the sight of so many be removed by Divine surgery so our vision is clear.
  • A prayer that Heaven be demonstrated on Earth as we live in ways that prove our believe in “as above, so below.”
  • A prayer that we study war no more and instead turn our attention to studying the nature of Harmony and refuse to be distracted by anything that appears otherwise.

This is a time for prayer.

  • A prayer for Spirit’s Highest Vision to magnetically pull us forward beyond any destination that can be reached by simply pushing away a temporary or uncomfortable pain.
  • A prayer for impatience, so our souls are troubled enough to accept Spirit’s call to take action.

This is a time for Prayer.

  • A prayer that inspires innovative remedies delivered by healing hands to eradicate this condition that is not just an intellectual inconvenience but a lethal and life threatening sickness.

This is a time for prayer.

  • A prayer that is the kindling in each individual soul that ignites a Spirit-Guided bonfire in the collective.

This is a time for prayer.

  • A prayer that is beyond any single personality because it is based on spiritual principle.
  • A prayer that is beyond words because it is expressed in actions.
  • A prayer that is beyond a minister’s sermon because it is lived by the masses.

So, today … and every day. Let. Us. Pray.

Alone and in groups. Let. Us. Pray.

On the streets and in the jails. Let. Us. Pray.

With our voices and with our feet. Let. Us. Pray.

In private and in public. Let. Us. Pray.

Silently and with great wailing. Let. Us. Pray.

For ourselves and for each other. Let. Us. Pray.


For this is a time for prayer.

Yours. And Mine.

When I was writing my novel Uptown Thief in 2011, I got a sex worker activist to read it. I was writing about sex workers and their fight for justice. I wanted to get my portrayals right, so I had an activist from that community read the book. I got a ton of notes and […]
