Remembering Murshida Vera Corda (1913-2002) on the anniversary of her urs (her return to God) 12 years ago
(Murshida speaking in 1986): "I would like to end with our prayer that is the simplest one, not the formal one which we use in our healing service, but the prayer Nayaz. We should do Nayaz every day without fail the moment we see what kind of a day it is and how the sun looks. Sometimes it is a little light ball through the fog and sometimes it will be a great reflecting orb up there. Whenever you do it, I want you to do it in this way. Would you all please stand for this; lifting your palms up and lifting your head saying the prayer, Nayaz from Hazrat Inayat Khan.
“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 Us, and We Pray, Heal Our Bodies Hearts And Souls.”
Bring the palms back down to the earth saying “Amen”. Then we have recognized the light, pulled it through our beings and dismissed it again. Very short, very efficacious and can be used line for line for the individuals you are working for too.
May the blessings of God rest upon you
Surround you with love and with light
And may the power of healing come into your hearts and your minds and your hands
And make of your chakras that hollow reed so that you may heal your loved ones
And those that you surround yourselves with that are beyond self, beyond the intimate family
So the whole of humanity may be graced by the healing light.
AMEN (... from a talk given in 1986 -- thanks to Mu’min Nurah Haq for the quotation) Bio here
