Father, heal the world

Father, heal the world

Let us all know in our hearts that there is no black, there is no white

There is only one people seeking to shine Your light

In Your world we are all equal in Your sight

Give us love to work together, to help heal the wounds of hate

Before it is too late

Give us eyes to see that we can help each other in community

By showing our compassion, our humanity

Help us to shine the love within one another

To love each person as our sister, our brother

Help us build a more beautiful world together

Where there is no K.K.K.

Where there is a brighter today, a more loving tomorrow

Where there is no more darkness, no more sorrow

The darkness cannot win if God’s love dwells within

Let’s get rid of weapons of mass destruction

And put our world under a more loving construction

Where we have no more war

Where we share a weapon darkness will never understand

The power that comes from holding each other’s hand

Through the storms of life

Through times of strife

Children teach us how to love

They teach us how to laugh

They help heal hurting hearts with their smile

They show us the power of love that goes that extra mile

We heal the world one heart loving another

Treating each person as our brother

By loving each other we teach our children to care

To stop the language of hate and indifference

Showing God’s love makes the eternal difference

So we can have a more healed world today and into God’s tomorrow

Where there will be no more tears and no more sorrow

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. Such a great post! We must be on the same wave length today. I posted a similar thought today. We are all brothers and sisters.

    • I think today what a wonderful blessing it is to support each other through these online discussions. I know many have criticized the web as being the world wide waste of time. Yet, when we use it to be edified, to really hear each other’s journey and to do what we can where we are to help those we see in need, that’s more powerful than the destructive power of hate and indifference.

      We truly heal the world as we seek to do what we can to touch the lives of those around us one act of kindness at a time.

      You are in my thoughts and prayers that your blogging will turn on a light of hope in so many lives filled with darkness, without the hope to go on.

      Keep shining your light. It makes a difference as you have made a difference in my life by taking time to comment on my piece. On this foggy and dull day the thoughts you have shared have lifted my spirits.

      Let us continue to encourage one another.

      Kevin
