The Presidential election has been extremely divisive. Both sides have attacked each other with the loser being us! In just a few days, the election will be over. We need to move forward as one country.
Our friend Jennifer Hoffman at HealthyMoving.com has started an online campaign for everyone to come together in prayer after the election.
This election cycle has left me exhausted, afraid and sad. And, I’m not even talking about the candidates. I’m worried about us…We the People.
Fear has been whispering these lies in my ear, telling me that the divide between us is permanent. That the bonds that unite us are forever severed. That there is nothing I can do.
But, a few weeks ago, I heard another small whisper. It wasn’t fear, it was hope.
Every major religion and faith tradition teach about the power of collective prayer and meditation. And many scientific studies confirm not only the positive effects of these practices on the practitioners, but also on the communities they inhabit. (Yes, collective prayer and meditation have been shown to benefit people who don’t even participate in the practice!)
We are inviting you to help us harness that power on election night!
Here’s What You Can Do – Join the #PeaceArmy
Follow these simple steps to join us:
Step 1: Commit to pray for or meditate on peace and unity at 8:30 pm on Tuesday, November 8th. (Don’t worry about timezones. Do it at 8:30 wherever you are and know that others are joining you!)

Step 2: Set an alarm on your phone, so you don’t forget.
