“Prayer is the courage to persevere. It is the struggle to overcome our own weakness and lack of confidence in ourselves. It is the act of impressing in the very depths of our being the conviction that we can change the situation without fail. Prayer is the way to destroy all fear. It is the way to banish sorrow, the way to light a torch of hope. It is the revolution that rewrites the scenario of our destiny.” – Daisaku Ikeda

Prayer transcends logic or intellect. It is an act in which we give expression to the pressing and powerful wishes in the depths of our being and yearn for their fulfillment with a powerful, unyielding conviction. And prayer must become manifest in action. So if our prayers are in earnest, they will definitely give rise to action.

In this greeting card, “I’m with you” translates into my heartfelt prayers for the peace and happiness of the Japanese people, as light pours into the heart of the Japanese flag “ The land of the rising sun. The Japanese names for Japan are Nippon and Nihon that literally mean "the sun's origin", that is, where the sun originates.

When the sun shines, all darkness in dispelled .As we pray together and take action to support Japanese people through this crisis, we expand our capacity as human beings to manifest our unlimited potential and to live lives filled with a powerful life force like the sun.
