The International Hour For Peace, also known as World Healing Day and World Peace Day, is a global effort launched in 1986 by John Randolph Price and the Quartus Foundation, an international non-profit spiritual research and communications organization.

The Hour For Peace was established to offer people all over the word an opportunity to gather together for peace, love, forgiveness, and understanding through a simultaneous global mind-link at noon Greenwich Mean Time on December 31st of each year. Based on the Quantum Physics principle that thought and prayer can direct energy and thus create reality, the event is designed to break down walls of separation and synchronistically join millions of people around the world in meditation, prayer, music, readings, dialogue, dance, and other ways to focus on and create lasting peace on Earth. It’s “a magical moment of Oneness” designed to “dissolve our sense of separation and return human kind to Godkind.”

Fort Collins began observing the Hour For Peace in 1986, the first year it began globally, and has done so every year since then. Many people have participated and find it to be a delightful and profound pilgrimage of hope and renewal.

In Northern Colorado, the doors for the event open at 4:30 a.m. and the program begins at 4:45 a.m. to give everyone a chance to get settled, prepared, and mindful for the 5:00 a.m. meditation and reading of the John Randolph Price World Healing Meditation, which is being read all over the world at that same time. Following the 30 minute meditation is 45 minutes of a variety of inspirational and interactive celebrations for and of peace.

Participation in the December 31st International Hour for Peace is a way for area residents to join millions of people all over our planet at Noon Greenwich Mean Time for prayer, meditation, music, readings, dialogue, etc. focusing on World Peace and Inner Peace for the coming year. Our goal is for people to not only gather to pray for and focus on World Peace and Inner Peace during that holy hour, but also to connect with other peacemakers and get ideas and resources to create and practice peace all year long.

When many minds join together with the intention of creating peace in the hearts of all people on earth, world peace happens! As Margaret Mead stated, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

John Randolph Price World Healing Meditation

In the beginning … In the beginning God.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And God said, “Let there be light!”
And there was light.
Now is the time of the new beginning.
I am a co–creator with God, and it is a new Heaven that comes,
as the Good Will of God is expressed on Earth through me.
It is the Kingdom of Light, Love, Peace and Understanding.
And I am doing my part to reveal its Reality.

I begin with me.
I am a living Soul and the Spirit of God dwells in me, as me.
I and the Father are one, and all that the Father has is mine.
In Truth, I am the Christ of God.
What is true of me is true of everyone, for God is all and all is God.
I see only the Spirit of God in every Soul.
And to every man, woman and child on Earth I say:
I love you, for you are me. You are my Holy Self.
I now open my heart, and let the pure essence of Unconditional Love pour out.
I see it as a Golden Light radiating from the center of my being,
and I feel its Divine Vibration in and through me, above and below me.
I am one with the Light. I am filled with the Light.
I am illumined by the Light.
I am the Light of the world.
With purpose of mind, I send forth the Light.
I let the radiance go before me to join the other Lights.
I know this is happening all over the world at this moment.
I see the merging Lights.
There is now one Light.
We are the Light of the world.

The one Light of Love, Peace and Understanding is moving.
It flows across the face of the Earth,
Touching and illuminating every soul in the shadow of the illusion.
And where there was darkness, there is now the Light of Reality.
And the Radiance grows, permeating, saturating every form of life.
There is only the vibration of one Perfect Life now.
All the kingdoms of the Earth respond,
and the Planet is alive with Light and Love.
There is total Oneness, and in this Oneness we speak the Word.
Let the sense of separation be dissolved.
Let mankind be returned to Godkind.
Let peace come forth in every mind.
Let Love flow forth from every heart.
Let forgiveness reign in every soul.
Let understanding be the common bond.
And now from the Light of the world,
the One Presence and Power of the Universe responds.
The Activity of God is healing and harmonizing Planet Earth.
Omnipotence is made manifest.
I am seeing the salvation of the Planet before my very eyes,
as all false beliefs and error patterns are dissolved.
The sense of separation is no more;
the healing has taken place, and the world is restored to sanity.
This is the beginning of Peace on Earth and Good Will toward all,
as Love flows forth from every heart,
Forgiveness reigns in every soul,
and all hearts and minds are one in perfect understanding.
It is done. And it is so!
