In Scientology, we have Sunday Services and these end with a prayer I wanted to share:
“May the author of the universe enable all men to reach an understanding of their spiritual nature.
“May awareness and understanding of life expand, so that all may come to know the author of the universe.
“And may others also reach this understanding which brings Total Freedom.
“At this time we think of those whose liberty is threatened; of those who have suffered imprisonment for their beliefs; of those who are enslaved or martyred, and for all those who are brutalized, trapped or attacked.
“We pray that human rights will be preserved so that all people may believe and worship freely, so that freedom will once again be seen in our land.
“Freedom from war, and poverty, and want; freedom to be; freedom to do and freedom to have.
“Freedom to use and understand man’s potential – a potential that is God-given and Godllike.
“And freedom to achieve that understanding and awareness that is Total Freedom.
“May God let it be so.”
The person who wrote this prayer was L. Ron Hubbard. Pretty beautiful huh?
