All praise belongs to Allah
grant us in our lives peace and justice
grant peace and justice to the world.

Psalm 19:14
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

I pray to God for knowledge of my ability to do the right thing, I pray to God for guidance and intelligence, and I pray to the Lord with thanks for joy and honesty, I pray to God for my feelings and thoughts. Amen.

In the morning we pray a prayer of thanks that we have awakened to live another day. At night we pray that the Lord will bless us with a peaceful rest and to awaken in the morning.

in thy presence o lord
filled with thy grace
i offer this prayer
and meditation
for the growth
and nourishment of life

lord grant that i may
grow more fully
in thy delight
and wholeness day by day

i give thanks
for the healing power
of thy love
thy will and thy way of life

i feel thy presence
thy divine grace fulfilling

I like to say thank you God for another day, when I arise. And I like to thank him for blessing me and ask him to bless me according to the prayer of Jabez, and I like the 121st Psalm when I am in need of reminding myself who is in control. And I like the 23rd Psalm when I need to feel God's protection, and to remind me that his mercy and his grace are following me. But mostly I pray informal prayers. Asking for God's hedge of protection around me and thanking him for answers to prayers for those I have prayed for.

Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell, satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

A Prayer From the Baha'i Scriptures
I testify, O my God, to that whereunto Thy chosen Ones have testified, and acknowledge that which the inmates of the all-highest Paradise and those who have circled round Thy mighty Throne have acknowledged. The kingdoms of earth and heaven are Thine, O Lord of the worlds!

Dear God, recognizing that I am not special and I nor my loved ones are exempt from the troubles of life, please grant me the wisdom to deal with the problems at hand and the courage to exercise such wisdom.

I choose to live my life in Shakti
May my dance be graceful, beautiful, and strong
May I benefit all I touch
May my efforts be multiplied
May all who befriend me know your blessings
May I know enough to do your work
May my lessons be gentle and my life sweet
May I be reconciled with all that I have trespassed
I choose to live my life in Shakti

The Prophet's Prayer
Oh Allah,
Place Light in my sight,
Light in my hearing,
Light in my Heart,
Light in my left hand and my right hand,
Light above me and below me,
Light behind me and before me,
Oh Allah, knower of the secrets of our Heart,
Lead us out of the darkness and into the Light.

From "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy
Our Father which art in heaven,
Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,

Hallowed be Thy name.
Adorable One.

Thy kingdom come.
Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Enable us to know,--as in heaven, so on earth,--God is omnipotent, supreme.

Give us this day our daily bread;
Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And Love is reflected in love;

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil;
And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

blessed be god's holy name, yesterday, today and forever.

Dear Lord thank you for my feet, so I may stand and walk.
Thank you for the earth in which my feet stand upon.
May my feet and the earth both be strong and healthy.
Thank you for my hands so I may touch and be touched.
Thank you for my nose so I may breathe this air and sustain life.
Thank you for the air around me.
May I help to keep it clean so it may sustain all living things.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
for the air within my body and the air around this blue planet.
Thank you for my brain so I am able to think and make decisions right or wrong, but may they all end up wise.
Thank you most for my heart so I may feel compassion for myself and others, which will lead me to a higher sense of love and understanding.
Thank you for the flame outside (sun), which keeps me warm and helps sustain life.
Thank you for the flame within, which fuels love, compassion, and a sense of responsibility, that feeds my very soul.
Thank you for me. May I feel that little bit of g-d within myself grow and grow.
Thank you for the almighty, someone to watch over me and guide me and love me till eternity. Amen
