O Queen of Heaven and Earth
Holy Shekinah:

We open our minds and hearts and lives to you,
And pray you enter and indwell;

Uplift us now into the Bridal Chamber,
Bring us into the embrace of the Beloved,
So that we might put on our Supernal Image,
To shine with Light above and below;

Be the Divine Spirit, inwardly illuminating us with the Living Word
and Wisdom,
And in this way lead us in the path of righteousness,
So that we might be a sign of hope to the people,
In good times and bad;

We pray for the liberation of the people and the land from all darkness;
We pray for the healing of all illness and dis-ease;
We pray for the Divine Illumination of all living spirits and souls!

May all holy sparks be gathered in; May the Divine Light shine forth!

We pray for the resurrection and ascension of this Good Earth;
Amen and amen.

Healing Prayer

 Thy name is my healing, O my God,
and remembrance of Thee is my remedy.
Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion.
Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor
in both this world and the world to come.
Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful,
the All-Knowing,
the All-Wise.

Prayer to the Mother of Goodness, Love and Mercy…

440px-Mother_of_God_-Znameniye

O Mother mine, Mother of goodness, love and mercy, I love you infinitely, and I offer myself to you. By means of yourgoodness, your love and your grace, save me. I desire to be yours. I love you infinitely, and desire you to protect me.

From the depth of my heart I pray you, Mother of goodness, give me your goodness. Let me gain heaven by means of it. I pray you, by your infinite love, to give me the grace so that I may love every man, as you have loved Jesus Christ. I prayyou to give me the grace to love your will, which is different to mine.

I offer myself to you completely and desire that you follow my every step. You are full of grace, and I desire that I will neverforget this. And if, by chance, I should lose grace I pray you to restore it to me once more. Amen.

Prayers for Peace

from the famous collection of du`as al-Hisn al-Hasin

(“The Mighty Fortress”)
by Muhammad al-Jazri, may Allah be pleased with him
Completed during the siege of Damascus

O Allah, unite our hearts
and set aright our mutual affairs,
guide us in the path of peace.

Liberate us from darkness by Your light,
save us from enormities whether open or hidden.

Bless us in our ears, eyes, hearts, spouses, and children.
Turn to us; truly you are Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

Make us grateful for Your bounty and full of praise for it,
so that we may continue to receive it
and complete Your blessings upon us.

O Allah, I beg of you pardon and safety.

O Allah, I beg of You useful knowledge
and acceptable deeds.

Allâhumma inni as’aluka `ilman nâfi`an

O Allah, impart to our earth its blessings,
its embellishment, and its repose.

O Allah, Your forgiveness is vaster than my sins
and Your compassion is more promising than my actions.

Allâhumma maghfiratuka awsa`u min dhunûbi
wa rahmatuka arjâ `indî min `amalî

O Allah, make me patient and grateful to You
and make me look small in my own eyes
and great in the sight of others.

Allâhumm aj`alnî sabûran waj`alnî shakûran

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I invoke the perfect words of Allah
from which neither a good person
nor a bad one can escape

for protection against any evil
that may come down from the sky or rise up to it

and any evil that may be planted in the earth
or spring forth from it

against the evil of the tests of the night
and the tests of the day

and the evil of the happenings of night and day
save only the happening that brings good

O Most Beneficent One!

A`ûdhi bi-kalimâti Llâhi tammat illati la yajawizuhunna barrun wa la fâjir

Amin, O Remover of Difficulties!

A Muslim Prayer for Peace

Muhammad preaching

In the name of Allah,
the beneficent, the merciful.
Praise be to the Lord of the
Universe who has created us and
made us into tribes and nations
That we may know each other, not that
we may despise each other.
If the enemy incline towards peace, do
thou also incline towards peace, and
trust God, for the Lord is the one that
heareth and knoweth all things.
And the servants of God,
Most gracious are those who walk on
the Earth in humility

O God! You are the Peace!

O God! You are the Peace.
The everlasting peace is from You
and it returns to You.

and enter us into the abode of Peace.
O Glorious and Bounteous One!
You are blessed and majestic.

Prayer of the Prophet

When the table-spread was laid out in front of the Noble Prophet, SAW, said:

Glory be to You O Allah, SWT,

 How wonderful is that which You have tested us with.

Glory be to You, how plentiful is that which You have given us.

Glory be to You, how plentiful is that which You have bestowed on us.

O Allah Increase for us our sustenance

and for the poor believing men and women

and for the poor Muslim men and women.

I am the Creator that Dreams

I am the Creator that Dreams
by Mystery School Initiate, Ember Flower

(found at this webpage: Northern Way’s Celtic Prayer Book)

I am the Creator that dreams
I am the Creation
I am the atom, the molecule and the space in between
I am the trees and the forest, the wind and the air
The stars and the twinkle
I dance the cosmic dance , I am the dance
I am you and you are me
There is no separation only oneness
I am thought I am matter
I am love and I am joy
I am sadness and sorrow
I am he and I am she, and I am it
I am the flower and the stone
I am the heartbeat and the rain
The sorrow and the pain
The moon and the stars
I am all and all is me
Life is my thought and my dream
I am all there is and all there is, is me
I am now and becoming
Forever unfolding in the mist of time.
I dream and so it is
You are child of light, I am the Flame of Life
No separation exists, only union
The child lives within the flame
Feel my presence, feel my magic
All is magic, all is life, my beloved flower
Allow the joy and love to flow through you
And out there.
As you touch the word know that it is my hand and my voice
As the world touches you, know that it is I
Feel the exchange folding back into itself
As I touch your mind know that you are transformed
Never to be the same again
Transformed from darkness to light
From sleeping to wakefulness,
And so the world awakes, one cell at a time
One cell in happy awareness of union with the divine
Your time has come daughter of Light arise in your wakefulness and help to create paradise, in love and joy
Be a conscious participant Live in the now.
Not tomorrow or yesterday but in the only time that is real, eternity
