Publisher's Summary

Increasing uncertainty. Global unrest. Shocking events. What next? What's the fate of our world? If we pray for peace how will our prayers be answered? What can we do?

This audiobook examines why our civilization is being shaken, where humanity makes its mistakes—and predicts the outcome. Barry Long's radical message is a prayer for a new life on Earth, beyond anything that can be imagined today.

"What can you possibly do at the end of the world, at the end of time? You can help yourself and others in a way you have probably never thought of. You are part of something immeasurably greater than a world or a body that can be destroyed by calamity or death."

The end of the world, the actual annihilation of it, is the result of the world's unconscious praying. Here a spiritual master describes what right prayer is and explains the difference between the power of prayer and the force of prayer—a distinction humanity has never bothered to consider.

These subjects are covered: 

  • The force of prayer 
  • Unconscious and irresponsible praying
  • The consequences 
  • No escape 
  • The change you can make 
  • The power of prayer 
  • Life is good 
  • How to pray rightly 
  • A prayer for life 
  • Prayers of freedom 
  • World without hope 
  • Responsibility 
  • The world and the earth 
  • Intelligence is the problem 
  • Civilization is corruption 
  • Real value 
  • The purpose of tragedy 
  • New life 
  • Dismantling the world
