World Day of Prayer 2020: From Fear to Faith


On World Day of Prayer 2020, I affirm the truth of my Christ consciousness. I focus on the presence of God within myself. I feel this presence as peace, love, and growing understanding.


In doing so, I recognize that fear is the basis of so many human emotions. I allow myself to see fear for what it is—only one version of reality I can tell myself.


“Fear is faith turned inside out. Fear is having faith in certain images created by the mind rather than having faith in the creative power of the mind itself.”—Rev. Robert Brumet

Guiding Prayer

Breathing in to prayer, I am in awe of the unbound spirit, the in­finite presence within and around me. God is vitality in my breath, beauty in the natural world, strength in my determination, and compassion in my acts of service. I recognize God in the spaciousness of the universe as well as in my limitless dreams.

Let me set my sight beyond where I have seen before, into the vast reality of divine power and presence. Let me draw upon divine power and presence in order to ful­fill my great potential.

In the harmony of prayer, my heart beats to the rhythm of God. The pulse of in­finite life moves me, nourishes me, and empowers me to give life to my dreams.
