A minute for peace…

Saying a prayer can be as simple as thinking positive thoughts about someone—it’s not an act that needs to be tied to any particular religion or system of beliefs.

I can say a prayer just by saying “I wish you peace” after someone becomes angry with me for something trivial;
I can say a prayer for the woman who is always cheerful (or gloomy) at the store where I shop by thinking “I wish you all the best in life—good health, good relationships, and all of your true needs fulfilled.”

Of course, if you want to pray to God in the form in which you conceive of God, that’s fine, too—and your prayer will not be wasted.

Think about it. Is the world a better place when you walk away from someone either forgetting them immediately or thinking negative thoughts about them?

This world of ours can use all the positive thoughts we can contribute to it, and our simple and heartfelt prayers are some of the most positive thoughts we can create and share.

And they affect us as much as, if not more than, they affect the objects of our prayers.
