Out of the depths, I cry to you, Lord!
My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow;
have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.
May your Word of truth comfort and strengthen my soul.
You are the Resurrection and the Life.
He who believes in you will live, even though he dies!

Be my Light, my Strength, my Hope, and my Peace. Amen.

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.

Nayaz, Pir-o-murshid Inayat Khan
