Cleansing Hands and Hearts

Recite this prayer as you wash your hands and your hands will be clean, your heart refreshed, and your mind renewed.

Print out this prayer and post it above the restroom sink on the mirror with a note saying  that if anyone washes their hands with soap and water for the amount of time it takes to recite this prayer, it will cleans their hands just as if they had used a chemical sanitizer, refresh their hearts, and remind them of the truly important issues in life.

May the Lord Bless you and Keep You!

A positive, spiritual and God centered idea in a country that currently seems to be panicking. In an earlier blog you referred to emotion over reason and the caution of right choices. This is one of those times. Blessings to you brother and thank you.
