Prayers

 

Prayer is an approach to Divinity invoked by the aspirant, the mystic or the spiritually inclined being that blends personality desire with a desire for soul contact. Through the demonstrated effectiveness of prayer, one observes the subtler powers and the fact of the essential dualism of life, discovering both a lower self and a higher Self.

 

 

May All Beings Be Free

 

As I breathe in I'm with my breath.
As I breathe out I'm with my breath.
May all beings be free.

 

As I breathe in I'm with my breath.
As I breathe out I'm with my breath.
May all beings be happy.

 

As I breathe in I'm with my breath.
As I breathe out I'm with my breath.
May all beings find peace.

 

As I breathe in I'm with my breath.
As I breathe out I'm with my breath.

May all beings end suffering.

 

Repeat this until you can no longer contain
the joy and then expand your container!

The Lord's Prayer

O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration!
Soften the ground of our being
and carve out a space within us
where your Presence can abide.
Fill us with your creativity ~
So that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share ...
... what each being needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us,
As we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose,
but illuminate the opportunities of the "present moment."
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth-power and fulfillment,
as all is gathered and made whole once again.

~So Be It ~

 

Translated by Mark Hathaway from Aramaic directly from the Aramaic into English
(rather than from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English)

 

 

 

Healing Prayer

Dear God,

Be my redeemer, my internal teacher, my divine physician.
Thank You for Your presence in my life.

I surrender to You all I am, all I think, all I feel, and all I have.
I recognize in this moment that Yours is the power to heal and make whole.
You who have the power to work miracles, You who rule time and space, please take me in Your arms and hold me.
Dear Lord, please lift me up and heal me.

Cast out of my mind all thoughts that are not of You.
Cast out of me all harsh and critical nature.
Cast out of me all violence and all anger.
Cast out of me all demons from my past.
For I would be made new.

I wish to walk so close to You that we might be as one.
I ask for new life, new mind, new body, new spirit.
Dear God, please come into me and release me from this pain.

Amen.

This wonderful prayer can be adapted as a healing prayer for others by substituting their name for "me."
