Some Prayers


Most Gracious Lord, Master, Messiah and Saviour of humanity,
we greet You with all humility.
You are the First Cause and the Last Effect,
the Divine Light and the Spirit of Guidance,
Alpha and Omega.
Your Light is in all forms, Your Love in all beings:
in a loving mother,
in a kind father,
in an innocent child,
in a helpful friend,
and in an inspiring teacher.

Allow us to recognize You in all Your Holy Names and Forms:
as Rama,
as Krishna,
as Shiva,
as Buddha;
let us know You as Abraham,
as Solomon,
as Zarathustra,
as Moses,
as Jesus,
as Muhammed,
and in many more Names and Forms,
known and unknown to the world.

We adore your Past,
Your Presence deeply enlightens our being,
and we look for Your Blessing in the future,
O Messenger, Christ, Nabi, the Rasul of God.
You whose heart constantly reaches upwards,
You come on earth with a Message, as a dove from above when dharma decays,
and speak the word that is put in your mouth,
as the light fills the crescent moon.

Let the star of the Divine Light shining in your heart be reflected in the hearts of your devotees.
May Your Message reach far and wide,
illuminating and making the whole of humanity as one single family in the Your Parenthood.

Amen

 

O That Which IS,
the Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty,
The Lord of Heaven and Earth,
Open our hearts, that we may hear Your Voice,
which constantly comes from within;
Disclose to us Your Divine Light,
which is hidden in our souls,
That we may know and understand life better.
Most Merciful and Compassionate One,
give us Your Great Goodness,
Teach us Your Loving Forgiveness,
Raise us above the distinctions and differences which divide us,
Send us the Peace of Your Divine Spirit,
And unite us all in Your Perfect Being.

Amen

 

Praise be to You, Most Supreme One,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent, All-pervading, the Only Being.
Take us in Your Parental Arms,
raise us from the denseness of the earth,
Your Beauty do we worship,
to You do we give willing surrender.
Most Merciful and Compassionate One,
the Idealized Lord of the whole humanity,
You only do we worship,
and towards You Alone do we aspire.

Open our hearts towards Your Beauty,
illuminate our souls with Divine Light,
O You who are the Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty,
All-powerful Creator, Sustainer,
Judge and Forgiver of our shortcomings,
Lord God of the East and of the West,
of the worlds above and below,
and of the seen and unseen beings.
Pour upon us Your Love and Your Light,
give sustenance to our bodies, hearts and souls,
use us for the purpose that Your Wisdom chooses,
and guide us on the path of Your Own Goodness.
Draw us closer to You every moment of our life,
until in us be reflected Your Grace, Your Glory, Your Wisdom, Your Joy and Your Peace.

Amen

 

Beloved Lord, Almighty One!
Through the rays of the Sun, through the waves of the air,
Through the All-pervading Life in space,
Purify and revivify me, and I pray, heal my body, heart and soul.

Amen

 

(Invocation)

Towards the One,
The Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty,
the Only Being,
united with all the illuminated souls,
who form the embodiment of the Master
The Spirit of Guidance.

Amen


These prayers originated through Inayat Khan. I have modified them very slightly by omitting endings like "est" from "comest", and changing "thou". If you would like to read them with those qualities and also have interest in other prayers that he brought forth and are used today, you can go to: This page.
