Need Something to Fill You with Love and Hope? Watch the “Man Prayer” (Video)

“May I be a man who creates space rather than dominates it.”

That is one of the opening lines to this breathtaking video created by Tony Stroebel called “Man Prayer”, with words by Eve Ensler.

This video is a prayer and manifesto for all men about creating respect for all people, exuding compassion, and valuing vulnerability and emotions.

It’s beautiful and full of exactly what we love to talk about here at The Good Men Project: it’s about love, character, good relationships, and being better people to our kids, mothers, fathers, friends, and everyone else in our life.

Watch and be inspired.

    Powerful words, but I get an underlying feeling that I’m being told by a women how to be a man. One of the primary comments that stands out relates to “loving our mother”. In my observations, most of my male friends “loved” their mothers a bit too much. The overarching issue I see in parental relationships involving men relates to ten father/son relationship.
