Prayer to St Christopher

Grant me O Lord a steady hand and watchful eye.

That no one shall be hurt as I pass by.

Thou gavest life, I pray no act of mine may take away or mar that gift of Thine.

Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear me company, from the evils of fire and all calamity.

Teach me to use my car for others need; nor miss through love of undue speed the beauty of the world; that thus I may with joy and courtesy go on my way.

St. Christopher, holy patron of travellers, protect me and lead me safely to my destiny.

The Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to loveFor it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Rosicrucian Contribution to Peace

I contribute to Peace when I strive to express the best of myself in my contacts with others.

I contribute to Peace when I use my intelligence and my abilities to serve the Good.

I contribute to Peace when I feel compassion toward all those who suffer.

I contribute to Peace when I look upon all men and women as my brothers and sisters, regardless of race, culture, or religion.

I contribute to Peace when I rejoice over the happiness of others and pray for their well-being.

I contribute to Peace when I listen with tolerance to opinions that differ from mine or even oppose them.

I contribute to Peace when I resort to dialogue rather than to force to settle any conflict.

I contribute to Peace when I respect Nature and preserve it for generations to come.

I contribute to Peace when I do not seek to impose my conception of God upon others.

I contribute to Peace when I make Peace the foundation of my ideals and philosophy.

Praise Be to God

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

PRAISE BE to God, Creator of the heavens and the earth!  He sends forth the angels as His messengers, with two, three or four pairs of wings.  He multiples His creatures according to His will. 
God has power over all things.

Holy Koran 35:1 (Al-Fatir)

Life's Demands

"... what characterizes those relative few who are fully mature is that they regard it as their responsibility - even as an opportunity - to meet life's demands.  Indeed, when we realize that everything that happens to us has been designed to teach us what we need to know on our journey of life, we begin to see life from an entirely different perspective."
