Prayers & Wishes

A collection of prayers and wishes from around the world.

Many of the prayers asked for good health, but one wished for an iPad 6, another a beautiful garden and someone else world peace. The prayers were all tied onto the prayer tree. (Sun Yat Sen Garden on Chinese New Year in Vancouver, Canada.)
