A Prayer for the New Year

O Thou, who abidest in our hearts,
most merciful and compassionate God,
Lord of heaven and earth
We forgive others their trespasses
and ask Thy forgiveness of our shortcomings.
We begin this New Year
with pure heart and with clear conscience,
with courage and hope.
Help us to fulfil the purpose of our lives
under Thy divine guidance.
Amen.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

A Nubian-Khamite Prayer

I am that I am.
I am a shining being,
dwelling in Light.
And I am made from the limbs
Of Divine!

In the ancient homes and temples along the Hapi (Nile) river, this prayer was sung in response to the words gracing every temple entrance: Know Yourself

May justice bring peace.

Prayer from the Aquarian Bible

May the Truth of the Voice resound to the Greater Glory of God.
May the Love and Wisdom of the Great Mother find a resting-place in the fallen Soul.
May the consciousness of Christ be as a guiding Light unto all beings.
For ever and ever. Amen.

(This is the Cosmic Christ)

From the MAAT texts - Aquarian Bible of the Cosmic Christ (http://members.aol.com/maattexts/index.htm)

Oh Great Spirit - Please heal the animals

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Who have taught us. Who have guided us. Who have sustained us. Who have healed us.
Please heal the animals.

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Whom we have slaughtered. Whom we have feared. Whom we have caged. Whom we have persecuted. Whom we have slandered. Whom we have cursed. Whom we have tortured.
Please protect the animals.

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Whose habitat we have stolen. Whose territory we have plundered. Whose food we have appropriated.
Whose young we have killed. Whose lives and ways of life we threaten.
Please restore the animals.

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Forgive us. Have mercy. May they return. Not as a resurrection, but as living beings.
Here. On this earth that is also theirs.

Oh Great Spirit. Please heal the animals. Please protect the animals. Please restore the animals.

So our lives may also be healed. So our souls may also return. So our spirits may also be restored.
Oh spirit of Raven. Oh spirit of Wolf. Oh spirit of Whale. Oh spirit of Snake.

Teach us, again, how to live.

A SIMPLE PRAYER from St. Francis

O Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring love,
Where there is resentment, let me bring forgiveness,
Where there is discord, let me bring unity,
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith,
Where there is error, let me bring truth,
Where there is despair, let me bring happiness,
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy,
Where there is darkness, let me bring light.
O Master grant that I may desire rather:
To console than to be consoled.
To understand rather than be understood.
To love rather than to be loved.
Because
It is in giving that we receive,
In forgiving that we obtain forgiveness,
In dying that we rise to eternal life.

Invocation for guidance

Dear Mother Father Creator God
I ask, that the next perfect step
of my piece in the Divine blueprint
clearly reveal itself to me
and bring with it
the perfect people and resources
required to make this piece manifest
into physical reality - NOW

Thank you

from the book "Living on Light" by Jasmuheen (Australia)

THE PRAYER OF THE UNITED NATIONS

Oh Lord,
our planet Earth
is only a small star in space.
It is our duty,
to transform it into a planet
whose creatures are no longer tormented
by war, hunger and fear,
no longer senselessly divided
by race, colour and ideology.

Give us courage and strength
to begin this task today
so that our children and children's children
shall one day carry
the name of
"MAN"
with pride.

KHATUM

KHATUM - prayer

O Thou, who art the perfection
of love, harmony and beauty,
the Lord of heaven and earth,
open our hearts,
that we may hear Thy voice,
which constantly cometh from within,
Disclose to us Thy divine light,
which is hidden in our souls,
that we may know and understand life better.
Most merciful and compassionate God,
give us Thy great goodness;
teach us Thy loving forgiveness.
Raise us above the distinctions and differences,
which divide us.
Send us the Peace
of Thy divine spirit,
and unite us all
in Thy perfect being.
Amen.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Nayaz - prayer for healing

Beloved Lord, Almighty God!
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.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

THE GREAT INVOCATION

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men -
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre, which we call the race of men
Let the plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power
restore the Plan on Earth.

The great Invocation does not belong to any individual or group. The beauty and the strength of this Invocation lie in its simplicity, and in its expression of certain central truths which all men and women, innately and normally, accept. The Christ consciousness is universal and found in many spiritual guides, e.g. Krishna, not only the historic person of Jesus. (see also about the Das Kosmische Kreuz)

A Meditation for Solar Activation

Look here Father Sun, It is I, a piece of the Sun.
I have come to you to understand the meaning of the cosmos.
I ask that I be allowed to go inside your memory for I desire to remember.
I want to understand everything again.
I need this knowledge for the future, so I may walk in harmony with the
earth and the stars once again.

I am the eyes that see as the Creator sees.
I am the ears that hear as the Creator hears.
I am the mind that knows as the Creator knows.
I am the heart that feels as the Creator feels.
I am the voice that speaks as the Creator speaks.
I am the soul that remembers as the Creator remembers.
As in you, so in me, I am now, and I am here.

May we be activated by the light of the SUN
to help us fulfil our solar destiny.
