Spiritual Family Prayer's for the World
I pray to God that all the children of the world will experience Divine Mother's Light. May those children who have no voice be given a voice through the grace of Divine Mother. May those children who are locked in grief be able to cry and experience Divine Mother's peace. May those children who have no childhood be given back their childhood and all the spontaneous joy their hearts can hold. And I pray to God that all the abused, parentless children will be healed and brought to their wholesomeness by the Love and nurturing of their true mother, Divine Mother.
Dear God of all, I pray through Your grace that the hearts of mankind will be given totally, instantly, and without resistance to Divine Mother; may the hearts of my brothers and sisters of the world be given in humility and reverence to Divine Mother, that the chains of longstanding ignorance and imprisonment be broken and that all hearts be filled with the infinite grace, peace, truth, and Love of God for all eternity. May all souls support and courageously protect Divine Mother Audrey as she takes Sri Ramakrishna's Light to the world; may they be unswerving in their love, devotion, obedience, and one-pointed focus to Divine Mother, that the world be restored to a gracious state of self-dignity, balance, and pure love and that mankind be transported to universal consciousness through Divine Mother's grace.
My highest prayer is for the world to be touched by all the Light and Love I have received from Divine Mother and Divine Mother Audrey.

To God's children of the world, realize that the kingdom of God is within you. Live life with an open heart. Accept all of life's experiences without question, for life's experiences, whether good or bad, will lead us back to ourselves, to our hearts. Praise God, for He is the Doer, the Controller, and the Destroyer. Know yourself and love yourself, for everything begins with yourself. Love God first.
I send you my love, and wish for all of you the many blessings I have received. I pray that whatever path you are on, you will come to know the perfection of God within you—and know that you are a perfect child of God. You have an immortal soul that will never die. I pray that you may see God's Hand in all that you experience in life, and that you find peace in knowing that everything we experience is for our evolvement. I pray that whatever difficulties you may face in life, that you find strength and courage through your love and devotion to God—for with God, all things are possible. With God's Love, and His strength, we will be able to overcome all obstacles. I pray that in your search for the truth, that someday your path will lead you to Divine Mother, for through her, I have found the way home, and I have experienced God's unconditional Love.

May all feel God's Love and peace in their hearts, that they can be grateful for the graces in their lives, and come to the awareness that each experience in life is a blessing and an opportunity to learn, change, evolve, grow, and to deepen love and compassion for others. May they come to understand that God is within each one, and we are all one in spirit, for there is only one great God who loves all unconditionally, and the different forms that each one takes to worship God should be respected and honored. May all foster in our hearts love for ourselves and of God so that we can shine God's Love to others to bring peace and love to this universe. May we all unite daily in meditation and prayer for our love of God and for each other, that each may be respected equally, and treated with dignity and kindness as God's precious child.
May we all live with dignity and respect for ourselves and others, and live each moment with joy and gratitude. I pray for the safety and well-being of everyone in the world, especially those who have suffered natural disasters and oppression, and for our leaders that they may receive God's guidance.
I pray that You may cleanse all hearts, minds, and bodies and fill them with Your Light and wisdom.
For this and future generations, we want peace where there is no arms race, nuclear testing, or suppression of religions. Beginning with the year 2000 and the years that follow, we want to conserve and enhance our natural resources and environment as a living legacy of Your gift to mankind. We praise You, God, and pray that Your Love will touch each heart and fill us and the world with Your peace.
With Thy grace, allow us to hear You, my Lord. Open our hearts to have humility. Allow us to serve You and Your children around the world with love. Help us to move through our daily activities and duties with You first in our hearts. Help us to see our perfect souls so we may love and respect ourselves and love and respect others.
To all in this universe, praise the works of Sri Ramakrishna and Divine Mother. They have united all religions from east to west. They have brought us to our divine and true self. We are now and forever brothers and sisters.
I wish you the blessing of God's sweet and gentle Love this day to embrace you. May you feel Divine Mother's Love wrap around you and fill you and those you love with hope, and inspiration, and may this Love ignite the divinity that is within you.
To be touched and blessed with Divine Mother's Light; for each person to have the opportunity to find their true Godself; to see that all religions are man-made and that there is only one God (one Source); to be in the presence or be touched by Divine Mother Audrey's message of Love; to know that they can break out of the bondages of life—through God's Love; to be able to express and release to God all of the hurt, sorrow and pain that is in their hearts, and to know that the Kingdom of God is within their own hearts.
First and foremost I pray for Divine Mother Audrey, who is taking Your message of Love to the world. I pray for the people in all the countries that Divine Mother Audrey visits, that they may embrace the Light and welcome Divine Mother Audrey and her messages of Love from God. I pray for our president and Congress, leaders of our state legislature and organizations, those who serve the government, and the NGOs, and the staff that support them. I pray for the leaders of every country, for the people of every country, that God's Light will help them to lead lives of grace, beauty, and joy—within and without. I pray for the students, administration, faculty, and staff of universities throughout the world so that they would be enriched in spirit, have joy in their service and become more expansive and promote true learning, the integration of spirit, mind, and body through the Light.

O Divine Mother, let the world come together in peace and harmony. Let the love from each of our hearts help to change the world around us. Let not race, creed, culture or age be an obstacle to the peace you offer each one of us. Let each person have the freedom to seek their own path and destiny to God realization. Let Divine Mother's message reach millions of people.
Lord, I pray that You extend Your wisdom to our political leaders to embrace spirituality so God becomes a number one priority—for in God everything is positive.

I ask that this beautiful Light that Divine Mother graciously brought to the world may be felt by all, for this Light is for all. I pray that anger, hatred, greed, and ugliness against others will be put to rest and replaced by love, dignity, and respect for all. May all join hands in unity and know that divine love exists in each one of us, so that we may live together in harmony, peace, and joy in the oneness of Your eternal, everlasting Love. Lord, I thank You for hearing my prayer.
O Divine Mother, may each one surrender to Your will and accept every experience as Your will.
