A scientist was doing some research into the ways people with health problems were affected after having someone pray for them. Two groups were formed - one received prayers and the other one didn't.
Those who were doing the praying belonged to a number of different religions. Periodically, they would receive a telephone call inviting them to say a prayer for a member of the first group.
The Buddhists chanted; the Evangelists called out to Jesus; the Catholics used their Rosaries - their differences were not important. What was important, was that they believed they were connecting with someone higher than themselves. They were all praying to 'Source' and they were asking for help; healing; peace; love and comfort for the person in need.
When we come together in prayer, a circle of Light surrounding the one we are praying for is formed. Those who have a sixth sense can often see or feel it.
Does prayer work? Does it bring about healings? Who knows - the results of the scientific study proved to be inconclusive. However, the researcher noticed that those in the group receiving prayer seemed to gain a better quality of life than those who didn't receive prayer. Somehow, they became more serene, more spiritual, and better able to cope with their problems.
It is now a very important and difficult moment in the history of mankind, so the more people who come together in prayer and form circles of light, the better. All you need to do is to come together with an open heart and a firm desire to bring comfort, Love and healing to those who are suffering. Once you have said the prayers of your choice, you can simply place the whole situation into the hands of the Divine. The outcome will then be for the Highest Good of all concerned.

All of a sudden he picked up his ears and was immediately fully awake. I wondered what could have woken him up as there wasn't a sound to be heard. I concluded that it must have been the silence itself that woke him.
I had to get up to let him out and, now wide awake myself, I felt inspired to write a little poem about what I felt was going through his mind.
THE SILENCE OF THE NIGHT
The still and steely silence
Drove my sleep away.
No bumps, no bangs,
No clunks, no clangs
To tense my gut as in day.
Fresh fields to roam
Not far from home.
A succulent mouse
Or perhaps in someone's house
Some mince left out on a tray.
Be ever vigilant.
The coast must be clear.
What I do is not for a seer.
My owner would shake
And shout and create.
I'm her lovely soft boy.
When I'm near she knows joy.
"But for Heaven's sake!
What time can it be?
No Pussie, not yet.
Go back to your bed.
It's only four;
Too early to open the door.
Okay, I can see
There's no peace for me."
So she let me go to roam,
But she wants me back home
When she has her first cup of tea.

The practice of gratitude as a tool for happiness has been with us for years. Many studies support the effectiveness of gratitude, which suggests that a positive, appreciative attitude can greatly contribute to success in business; enhanced health and well-being (often resulting in a faster recovery rate after surgery); as well as a heightened performance in sports.
While we may acknowledge the many benefits of gratitude, it may, however, prove difficult to sustain an attitude of being grateful. Many of us have been trained to notice what is broken, undone or lacking in our lives. Therefore, for gratitude to meet its full healing potential, it needs to become more than just a few words on Thanksgiving Day. We really have to learn a new way of looking at things, a new habit - and that, without doubt, can take some time.
That’s why practicing gratitude on a continual basis makes so much sense. When we practice giving thanks for all we have, instead of complaining about what we lack, we give ourselves the chance to see all of life as an opportunity and a blessing.
Remember that gratitude isn’t a blindly optimistic approach, in which the bad things in life are whitewashed or ignored. It’s more a matter of where we put our focus and attention. Pain and injustice exist in this world, but when we focus on the gifts of life, we gain a feeling of well-being. Gratitude balances us and gives us hope.
There are many things to be grateful for: colourful autumn leaves, legs that work, friends who listen and really hear, chocolate, warm clothing in the winter, the ability to read, fresh flowers, butterflies, our health. What’s on your list?
Some Ways to Practice Gratitude :
• Keep a gratitude journal in which you can list things you are thankful for.
• Make a gratitude collage by drawing or pasting pictures.
• Have thoughts of gratitude before falling asleep, and always try to find the hidden blessings in a challenging situation.
• When you feel like complaining, make a gratitude list instead. You may be amazed by how much better you feel.
• Notice how gratitude is impacting your life. Try to write about it, sing about it and always express 'thanks' for gratitude.
As you practice, an inner shift begins to occur, and you may be delighted to discover how contented and hopeful you are feeling. That sense of fulfillment is gratitude at work.

Here is a short poem that is dedicated to all Light Workers no matter what religion or spiritual path you belong to:
The Light Worker's Way
Our roads entwine,
We make our way.
We wait upon
The breaking day
For His work, not yours,
We must only wait
The reason for life's
But no one walks the road
For His hand, yours and mine
Will lead us to where we
Just wait awhile and
You'll see the gifts;
For if your eyes will seek
They'll surely find
Who needs your help
