How to Help Bring Global Peace and Healing with Strategic Prayer

What Is Strategic Prayer?

Strategic prayer is spiritual first aid. It is used in crisis situations, such as war, plane crashes, earthquakes, floods or riots to bring help, inspiration, and healing and to assist in relief efforts. If, for example, a war is pending somewhere in the world and peace talks are about to begin, you may feel inspired to send prayers to the peacemakers because the outcome may depend upon the decisions of these people.

Your reason for the prayer is not to make the peacemakers feel better; it is more important than that. You want them to act in accordance with their greater wisdom – their Higher Selves. You are not asking that they become happy and fulfilled; you are asking that they might have the clarity of mind or wisdom to make the right decisions, whatever they might be. Your prayers, if phrased correctly, will help them to do just that. You are then playing your part in keeping the peace. One person could make a key difference to the outcome!

We should never use prayers to change people’s minds in a specific way. The mission of prayer practitioners is to radiate love, to inspire, and to heal—not to judge or manipulate—and to leave the outcome to the great law of karma, or God.

Here is an example of prayer that can be said when nations are attempting to negotiate peace:

A Strategic Non-denominational Prayer for Peace Negotiations 

Oh Divine Creator and Preserver of All Life,

I humbly request that Your boundless Love, light, and healing

May flow now to all involved in the Peace Talks in [name the area].

I pray that they may be risen up to the Light, Love, and Wisdom

That dwells silently within them.

May Your Divine Power flow now

In a stream of Love to These Ones,

Filling, inspiring, and strengthening them at this time

So that they may know their nearness to Your great Heart.

Oh Wondrous God,

I request that the result of these Peace Talks

May be in accordance with Your Infinite Will.

In all humility, do I thank You

For listening to my prayer

And for allowing me to be a channel

For your everlasting Love.

May Your Will be forever done.

Strategic prayer is something you may not have thought about previously because the words strategy and prayer do not usually go together. However, by directing prayer intelligently and with intention to sensitive situations, you can help to bring about harmony and resolution.

Politics never has, and never will, bring lasting solutions because all types of outward changes are at best only temporary. For a lasting solution, we have to bring a spiritual change within ourselves and throughout the world via our prayers and spiritual actions. If enough people make this spiritual change then, by the great law of karma, lasting peace will be created.

You may be only one person, but there are eight billion of us compared with the handful of real leaders in our world. More than ever before, the ball is in our individual and collective courts. As the great Spiritual Master Dr. George King said: “The real energy crisis which exists upon our world is the spiritual energy crisis, and if this was solved, all other crises would cease to exist.”[1] Strategic prayer is a wonderful way to really make a positive difference.

Another example of the usefulness of strategic prayer is during a natural disaster, such as an earthquake. Pray for those who are injured, those who have lost loved ones, and for those involved in the relief efforts. Your prayers will help to inspire them and will give them greater strength and determination. Prayer energy can help on other levels as well, such as enabling food, water, and medicines to be distributed more easily. You can phrase your strategic prayers so that they help all the relief workers, from the administrators, to those driving the trucks, to the medics in the field. All of these people are essential to a smooth and effective relief effort, and your prayers can help the entire process.

Prayer energy enables things to flow more easily on a psychic and spiritual level. It works at the level of giving people extra strength and energy to do the work they have to do. It can inspire them to do more, uplift their spirits, motivate them, and heal them. Prayer works through people and with people.

Here is another prayer that can be said for victims of a natural disaster:

A Strategic Non-denominational Prayer for Victims of a Natural Disaster

Oh wondrous creator of all life,

May your Divine and infinite love

Flow now to all the victims of the earthquake in [name the area]

So that they may be comforted

And given the help, healing, and strength they need at this time.

Oh wondrous God,

May your divine light flow now to bring harmony to this area of Earth

To act as a healing balm at this time of great need.

May your wondrous power also flow to all those

Brave souls who are working in many ways

To bring aid and relief to this area.

May this power fill them with strength and love,

May it surround them with your divine protection

So that they may feel their nearness to You.

Oh that which is behind and within all Life,

I am indeed grateful for Your divine help

And I pray, in all humility,

That your will may be done.

There are many other types of strategic prayer that you can use, such as prayers for the environment, for the relief of famine and starvation, for peace when there is the threat of war, for victims of a plane crash, or in other instances of severe disasters.

A Strategic Prayer Exercise

  • Read the prayer you wish to use a couple of times until you understand what you are saying and feel comfortable with the words, or write your own prayer. Think about what the words mean and of the positive effect they will have, and feel compassion in your heart for those you are about to help.
  • When you are ready, seated or standing, raise your hands in the prayer mudra, with hands raised to about shoulder height, palms facing outwards. Keep your fingers and thumb together and be relaxed around your neck and shoulders.  Keep your feet flat on the floor and your spine straight (see photo below).
  • Using your imagination, visualize a brilliant white light coming down through space, entering your head and brain, coming down through your neck and shoulders, and flowing out through your heart chakra, which is a few inches in front of the physical body, and from the palms of your hands. Feel the wonderful, uplifting spiritual power flowing through you.
  • Say the prayer with as much feeling, love, and power as you can. Say it as if your life—and the lives of other people—depended upon it, as indeed they might. At the point in the prayer where you request that power flows through you to the focal point of your prayer, allow a pause during which you visualize a brilliant white light of love flowing from your heart and palm chakras.
  • Always make your visualizations positive. Do not visualize the pain and suffering you have heard about in the news, visualize the region being filled with white light – with people there being joyful, in perfect health and spiritually uplifted.
  • Afterwards, swipe your right-hand palm over your left-hand palm in the mudra of detachment.

Rest assured that your prayers really help. You will never know exactly what good you have done, but know that you have transformed the world to some degree. You may have helped avert a war or helped to save the life of a child on the other side of the world.

In answer to a question Gary Blaze (my husband and co-author of the book, Power Prayer) was asked about prayer, he said this:

I firmly believe, and have had proved to me from practical experience, that we all can do something. All it takes is a heartfelt desire, a technique, and the will to learn and apply that technique. For example, a murderer sitting in a prison can, if he has the above, send healing to others. Granted, his abilities and results will improve with time and practice, but he can still help others now. As a healer, I know painfully and full well how limited I am as both a healer and as a person, and how much I have to learn, but if I wait until that day when I may be deemed ready, how many people would I have missed helping? The important thing is to start. What I’m trying to say is that I know you can help now, and become part of the solution.

    This is really well explained Chrissie. Thank you so much for these practical prayers. I will print them out and keep them in my prayer room.

    • Chrissie Blaze on March 1, 2023 at 6:04 am

      Thank you, Jack. I’m so glad the Blog and prayers are helpful, and thank you for all you do for our Society in Italy!

  2. Emma on March 1, 2023 at 2:31 am

    Beautiful heartfelt prayers thankyou Chrissie, and thankyou Gary for your reflection, I know i can all empathise with your feelings of not being good enough at healing but I always hold on to …every little helps in some way or another 🤍

    • Chrissie Blaze on March 1, 2023 at 6:11 am

      Thank you, Emma, for your kind words. You are so correct that every little helps. Sometimes we doubt that one person can really make a difference but if we look at our history, it is usually one person who does bring change to our civilization. Then, that one person inspires others until we have a critical mass of people who can transform our world.

    Thank you Chrissie for sharing your beautiful prayers for us all to use. I love your powerful reminder that “prayer works through people and with people” and that every individual has the power to help and heal. In the tsunami of global negativity it is particularly encouraging.
    Thank you, too, Gary for your observation that starting right now is, indeed, of paramount importance, no matter how ineffectual one might feel.
    Bless you both for this timely blog.

    • Chrissie Blaze on March 1, 2023 at 8:36 am

      Thank you, Elizabeth, for your lovely post. I know how dedicated you are to prayer so it is particularly encouraging to hear your comments.It is so true that there is a ‘tsunami of global negativity’ and it seems overwhelming at times. However, I think of the world as one unit rather like our bodies which have a ‘healing intelligence’. We cut our finger and our whole body goes to work to heal that finger. I feel it must be similar with humanity since we are one. Right now, however, humanity needs outside assistance, just as our bodies do at times of great stress and disease. It is unrealistic to expect everyone to change just as long as enough people do. At that point, with all the ongoing Cosmic Missions invented by our Master, with his Teachings, and with the powerful and ongoing assistance given by the great Masters, I believe the world can harmonize, heal and transform. Every prayer helps; every kind and selfless deed helps. Thank you!

    Thank you, Chrissie, for both prayers, they will be used. I especially appreciate the peace negotiations prayer – it will allow me to say a much fuller prayer than I have had the confidence to do in this particular area.

    • Chrissie Blaze on March 2, 2023 at 5:16 am

      Thank you, Juliet for your message and I am so glad you found the prayers helpful and will use them. I am very glad to hear that! All the very best to you for the wonderful service you are giving to our world.

  5. Nancy Huemme on March 2, 2023 at 5:41 pm

    Thank you Chrissie! MY motto is if not us who if not now When?Yes the world needs action now people have to see it they just don’t know what to do.Because of your strength of conviction and example prayers they can experience the energy coming out of their palms !!Then they will go forward thru their own experiences.

    • Chrissie Blaze on March 3, 2023 at 5:07 am

      That’s a good one, Nancy, I like that! I agree that experience is so important. While it’s good to study, it’s when one actually applies the knowledge that one can really understand and grow. This is the Age of practical Spirituality, as our Master demonstrated over and over again. Thank you for your insight!
