Looking for another possibility to ask for help for ourselves, the new president, and our country?
I often say this one for the president, for his advisors and cabinet, for both houses of Congress, and for all the judges in our land, from the Supreme Court down -- including appellate courts, circuit courts, district courts, county courts, city courts, and even drug courts, mental health courts, veterans courts and any other court I can think of at the time I’m praying. That said, I always try to start with myself, so as to keep the playing field level, so to speak. I need the Light, Love and Purpose as much as any others – indeed, if I am praying for others, it is my belief that I should do my best to offer those prayers from as best a place of integrity as I am able.
Here's Alice Bailey's Great Invocation. Those of you who know this prayer will see that I have tweaked it a little. Here’s what I say:
“From the point of Light within the Mind of God,
Let Light stream forth into the minds of man, (and when I recite this I specify whom: into my mind, into the mind of the president, into the minds of his advisers and cabinet, into the minds of those in Congress, both the House and the Senate, and into the minds of all judges),
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God,
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of man, (and again, specifying if that feels right for you),
May Christ return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known,
Let purpose guide the wills of man, (and I put in, that we may treat each other with respect, dignity, kindness and cooperation so that we may live together in harmony and for the benefit of all),
The purpose that that the Masters know and serve (which sometimes I leave out, as I’m not sure what purpose the Masters walking the Earth at this time hold intention for.)
From the center which is called the race of man,
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out,
And may Love, Light, Peace, Truth, Wisdom, Compassion and Balance move through this dimension, shifting us to a higher level of Being on Earth and aiding our spiritual evolution.”
(This verse my biggest departure… but very true to my sentiments.)
If the use of "man" bothers you, substitute what you'd like -- humanity, people, men and women.... I believe the intention carries more weight than the actual word.
