A Song. A Prayer. For All. For Hope. For Peace.

Everyday we see calamities, injustice, war, death, sufferings and sadness throughout the world.
It's a sad beginning of the new year when mankind has lost its sanity and brought chaos to this world we love and call home.

For a change, we should pray that God will be our guide in our daily doings, lead us to a right path and to be a better person. Clear our minds of corruption. Care for Gods Creations. Soften the hearts of the wicked. And bring new hope, love and peace to all.

Let us pray through this beautiful song called "The Prayer" (translation)

I pray you'll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way

Lead us to a place
Guide us with your Grace
To a place where we'll be safe

La luce che to dai
(The light that you give us)
I pray we'll find your light
Nel cuore resterò
(Will stay in our hearts)
And hold it in our hearts
A ricordarchi che
(Reminding us)
When stars go out each night
L'eterna stella sei
(That in my prayer)
Nella mia preghiera
(You are an everlasting star)
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede c'è
(There's so much faith)
When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe.

Sognamo un mondo senza più violenza
(We dream of world with no more violence)
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
(A world of justice and hope)
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
(Grasp your neighbors hand)
Simbolo di pace e di fraternità
(As a symbol of peace and brotherhood.)

La forza che ci dai
(The strength that you give us)
We ask that life be kind
E'il desiderio che
(Is the wish)
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amore
(That everyone may find love)
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a sé
(In and around himself)
Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Needs to find a place,
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

E la fede che
(And the faith that)
Hai acceso in noi
(You've lit inside us)
Sento che ci salverà
(I feel will save us )
