Dear God I need to pray

8 May

Dear God is a global project for people around the world to share their innermost hopes – and fears – through prayer.
It doesn’t matter what your version of God is…Jesus, Allah, Buddha or simply a spiritual universal energy… praying to a higher power soothes and heals. It’s scientifically proven that people who pray are healthier, happier and more resilient.
Share your prayers and help people create hope one prayer at a time. Simply send your personal letter to your God and/or a picture that sums up your message visually. (Dear God will source a picture if you don’t have one).
Thank you God!
