PRAYER FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D. , FOUNDER - INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY




          In 2016, the world will again observe the International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys.  It is a special day that continues to promote peace, healing, cooperation and harmony.  Here is a prayer that seeks to reflect on praying for change and those who need prayers in their lives:



We pray for those members of the human family who are considering suicide and attempted to end their lives. Give them inner strength  and faith to overcome personal challenges and ease their burdens.



We continue to pray for fellow global citizens who committed suicide and their grieving families and friends. We pray that their actions will not be in vain but serve as a lesson and light to prevent future tragedies.



Pray for unfortunate fellow human beings who are terminally ill and suffer from painful ailments. Let them realize that suicide is neither an escape nor a solution. Pray for refugees and deportees whose lives have been disrupted.



The world must constantly pray for the victims of natural disasters, child abuse, human trafficking and rape. Give them the power to regain control of their lives. Let them transform their misery to a miracle.



Pray for the persons who are responsible for evil actions. Let them realize the cruelty and suffering that others endure. We pray for the women and babies who died during childbirth. Let their deaths not be in vain and that the future will have improvements in medical services.
