A Prayer for the Philippines from Dr. Kenn Gordon
Dr. Kenn Gordon, Spiritual Leader

Let us come together in the conscious awareness of the Presence that connects us to It and to one another. We bring It alive in our minds and our being, invoking the infinite Truth that has always been and will always be, knowing we are unified with It and grounded in It.
As such I speak my word for all who have been affected by the typhoon in the Philippines. I know that the Divine Grace of God brings to wholeness all things that are disrupted, injured, destroyed, and displaced; that the Goodness that is God is present in the middle of all events, and that which appears as horror, terror, and loss is balanced by the love and light that is Spirit. I speak my word knowing that, that which appears lost in fact is found and that, that which appears damaged is in fact intact. I surrender my need to question why and my human response to suffer and instead know that God transcends suffering and goodness is both the Cause and the Effect. I know that this event brings to life within all the compassion, understanding, and generosity that rises above the day-to-day affairs and awakens within all individuals the love and giving-ness of humanity. I know that in all ways, everyone affected by this storm is supported, nourished, and guided, that the effects pass and that the loss of life is mitigated by the gain of a closeness that supersedes the temporal and transforms the afflicted.
It is with loving gratitude that I recognize this as my truth and I surrender it and release it into the Divine Mind that is All Mind. As I do this, something awakens within me and guides me to do all that needs to be done to comfort, support, and love all who suffer, knowing that Spirit is present and active as the body of humanity.
This is what I know. I let go and let it be my truth.
And So It Is.
