An order for midday prayer

An order for Midday Prayer

A reading:
The apostles rejoined Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught.  Then he said to them, “you must come away to a quiet place all by yourselves and rest awhile”; for there were so many people coming and going that they hardly had leisure even to eat.   So they went off in a boat to a quiet place where they could be by themselves.  

                                                                                                                                                                                                   (Mark 6.31-32)

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.

Lead us from the unreal to the Real.
Lead us from darkness to light.
Lead us from death to immortality.
Peace, peace, peace unto all.
May there be peace in celestial regions.
May there be peace on Earth.
May the waters be appeasing.
May herbs be wholesome,
and may trees and plants bring peace to all.
May all beneficent beings bring peace to us.
May thy Law propagate peace
all through the world.
May all things be a source of peace to us.
And may thy peace itself, bestow peace on all
and may that peace come to me also. 

Our Father, 
who art in heaven, 
hallowed be thy Name.  
Thy kingdom come, 
thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.  
Give us this day our daily bread, 
and forgive us our trespasses 
as we forgive those who trespass against us.  
And lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from evil
 – for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, 
for ever and ever.  Amen

Good! In the next few days I'll be posting Evening Prayer and Night Prayer, and can add others as time goes on.

God bless you and fill you with peace today. x
