A prayer for the world

Almighty God,
We thank you for the gift of all the continents of the world;
Thank you for the different people
And different races;
We pray for all people
Of the world,
Especially the people
Of America;
This great country
That is facing trying times
Like many other countries;
Injustice, and racial discrimination are having their toll on them;
We have seen violent demonstrations
Which have placed the country in very bad shape;
And people have lost their lives;
Insecurity is rife;
We pray you O Lord,
To help this country;
We commit her poor leadership into your hands;
Grant them the wisdom
To be just,
To get rid of racial discrimination;
To inspire her leader to rule with love and fairness;
The corona virus pandemic
Has not spared this country;
Thousands have been infected;
And the statistics keep rising;
Many have already died;
Many more are expected to die;
You alone have the solution to this problem;
We pray O Lord that you save the people of America from this deadly disease.
We pray for our brothers and sisters in this country;
They are facing tough times
Because of the incompetent leader the country has;
They have an important election coming up;
They will be going to the polls;
They will be voting
To choose someone
To lead them for the next four years;
We know the two candidates
Contesting for this position;
Father, you know everything;
You know the one that is better
Than the other;
You know the danger
That one poses;
You know the trouble
That this country is passing through;
For four years, she has had the poorest leadership in her history;
We pray you to give them a leader who will save the country from going deeper into trouble.
Because what happens here affects other countries;
As we pray for them,
We also pray for all other countries;
We oray for all people
Who are suffering from bad leadership;
Remove bad leaders from power;
And put good ones who will rule according to your will;
Save the world
From covid 19;
We also pray for ourselves;
Our problems are many;
We pray you to help us overcome them;
They are many and more than us;
But with you, nothing is difficult;
Only say the word and we will have what is good for us;
Wipe our tears;
Make us stop crying;
Remove greedy people from power
Wherever you find them;
Make truth and justice prevail;
Put an end to hunger,
All the trouble caused by poverty and greed;
Wipe out evil and let good reign;
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord,
Amen!

Vote for a name

In 2017, I look forward to major changes on this site. One of them has to do with the name.

The name has changed many times since this blog started. In 2017, I want us to give it the final name. Some readers say the current name “Success Inspirers World” is okay. Some say they prefer the first name “Success Inspirer” which bis short and simple.

I am at a loss which to take and thought I should bring it to you. Kindly contribute. Which of the two names do you prefer? Why if you may explain?

Weigh up your vote

What shall your vote do?
Shall your vote promote good or evil?
Shall your vote make your country better or worse?
Shall your vote make the world better or worse?
Shall your vote nourish or kill division?
Shall your vote improve or worsen the situation of women?
Shall your vote enhance democracy or dictatorship?

Who can predict?

Who can predict?
Who can say who will win?
Will it be Trump?
Or will it be Hillary?
Will it still be a man?
Or a woman will have
A chance this time?
It’s just hours away:
Tell me what you think;
Tell me what you foresee;
Tell me who you think will win:
And if you cannot guess,
Tell me who you like to win.
Should women have a chance
To show what they can do?
Or men should continue
To dominate
While the world sings
Gender equality?

Today is action day

Today is action day;
Not talking day;
Today is decision day;
You may call it choice day;
Talking time is over;
The day for action is today;
And the time for action is now;
That is why we say
Today is action day;
Not talking day;
Act!
Decide!
Choose!
But be wise!
Don’t regret tomorrow;
Act!
And act wisely!
Decide!
And decide wisely!
Choose!
And choose wisely!
Vote!
And vote wisely!
Don’t be ashamed of your vote tomorrow!

Beware who you vote for!

Only an unscrupulous person
Will vote
For an unscrupulous person
To get into office.
Only a wayward person
Will vote
For a wayward person
To get into office;
Only a racist
Will vote
For a racist
To get into power;
Only a dishonest person
Will vote
For a dishonest person
To get into power;
Only a crooked person
Will vote
For a crooked person
To get into power;
Therefore beware of who you
Will vote
For in this election
For it will reflect who you are.
