How does it feel to exist, but to be treated as if you are invisible . . . to greet each new day with the unsettling knowledge that you will be treated “less than” – by other souls who will make assumptions about you rather than take the time to get to know you? What is it like to speak, but not be heard because the souls around you – even the souls who profess to love you – are either not listening or pretending not to understand the wisdom and warnings that punctuate your words? Who are these souls who are made to feel “invisible” and “less than”?
They are Men – Our Fathers, StepFathers, GrandFathers, Great GrandFathers, Uncles, Great Uncles, Husbands, Sons, Brothers, Nephews, Cousins, Neighbors, and Co-Workers. Many of these souls have lived and continue to live exemplary lives. Under the most difficult set of circumstances and within a harsh and unforgiving environment, they have struggled to positively shape the minds and souls of Our Children – the Next Generation of Leaders, Husbands, Fathers, Mothers, and Wives. In times of chaos, they have been the voice of reason. Yet, despite their contributions and sacrifices, collectively, Men throughout our global village remain an untapped source of history, powerful and redemptive life lessons, and wise counsel.
Who will tell their story? Who will ensure that their wisdom and powerful and redemptive life lessons will not die with them?
On, Sunday, 3 November 2019, under the theme, “Remembrance”, the 2019 International Day Of Prayer for Men And Boys, 7.8 billion souls of all faiths with whom we share Planet Earth are encouraged to remember the Men in their lives who are and have been untapped sources of history and have selflessly gifted each of us with wisdom and powerful and redemptive life lessons.
Inaugurated on Sunday, 14 November 2014, the International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys is a unifying call to move the Global Interfaith Community to the “Table Of Humanity” to collectively heal the spiritually, psychologically, and emotionally wounded souls among us and transform toxic communities into a nurturing, self-sustaining, and vibrant oasis. The International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys is a call to fill an existing vacuum of compassionate and solutions-based leadership and to create certainty in a world that is immersed in paralyzing uncertainty.
