Prayers Of The Light

by Jean-Pierre d'Armagnac.

Short Prayers

Prayer of Fortitude

To give respect and love to all around,
To that oath of compassion we are bound,
For that we work ever so tenacious,
May the Light lend its strength to us.

A prayer for courage

Shroud not thy heart with sorrows,
for the Light conquers all shadows.
Follow dilligently its divine ways,
and find courage in Light's embrace.

A prayer for wisdom

In prayer I search ever so solemly,
help for questions without answers.
holding to the Light so desperately,
to guide me where my wisdom falters.

A ward against fear

Against odds and spells unkind,
Illumination steadies the mind,
The Light holds my soul so dear,
And shields my heart from all fear.

To fight the shadow

Darkness encroaches the world around us,
and hides the path that is Virtuous,
To the Light we are bound in oath,
In our hearth we find again the road,
The way that will lead us to illumination,
And cast the darkness to eternal damnation

Inner fire

Light, spark in my heart the fire and passion,
to fight with respect, tenacity, compassion,
In this moment where I need them so dire,
Bless me with the strength of your inner fire.


May forever the ancient words of wisdom live on in remembrance.
May the spirit find new youth, now and forever.
May the Light guide me and teach me.

Teach me

Teach me to be generous.
Teach me to to serve.
Teach me your will.
To give and not to count cost
To fight and not to heed wounds
To labor and not seek to rest
To give and not ask reward but..
To know I follow your Path.

Angel of Light

Angel of Light, my guardian dear,
To whom my love commits me here.
Ever this day, be at my side,
To Light and guard, to rule and guide.


Fire of the Spirit,
Life of all creatures,
Spirit of sanctity,
Glow of charity,
Light of clarity,
Call to the fallen,
Be with us and hear us.

Unity in the Light

Common be our prayer,
Common be our resolution,
Common be our deliberations.
Alike be our feelings,
Unified be our hearts,
Perfect be our unity.

Four Blessings

May all beings have happiness and its causes,
May they never have suffering nor its causes,
May they constantly dwell in joy transcending sorrow,
May they dwell in equal love, both near and far.

Offer to the Light

In body, speech and mind,
I offer my soul and being,
I renounce my wrongs,
I rejoice in the Light,
I dedicate to its Virtues,
I live for its Enlightenment.


I seek refuge in the Light, until I attain Enlightenment,
I seek merit in generosity, and all true Virtues of Light.
May I attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.

Prayer of a Teacher

By the Light and its Virtues,
its Enlightenment so great,
May my help and my training,
Lead others to that state.

Eternal Light

May the most precious Light that has come
May the most precious Light that will come
Never decline but always increase.

Long Prayers

Faith in the Light

Should darkness strive to shroud my mind,
In the Light, my heart will keep faith,
In the Light, its wisdom I will find,
In the Light, darkness will be unmade.
Should shadows strive to cover my sight,
In the Light, I see all I could wish,
In the Light, I will find my guide,
In the Light, shadows will diminish,
Should harm strive to reach the innocent
In the Light, they will be warded,
In the Light, we will find judgement,
In the Light, we will be guarded.
Should deceit strive to undo friendship,
In the Light, no heart will be bent,
In the Light, friends cause no hardship,
In the Light, the wicked will repent.

Mourning the tragedy of war

Have I not seen in time the shadows growing around me?
Chosen war that brought death as far as the eye can see?
Is there glory left for the Light in this gruesome victory?
Or is all that remains from these actions the hideous atrocity?
I search relentlessly for the Virtues as our guide,
Hoping the Light will reach for us and stay by our side.
I pray we have not strayed from the Enlightened path,
and deprived our lives from the glory they could have had.
Had the Light not taught me the meaning of Tenacity,
I would have lost faith and searched for it unwillingly,
And not found it in my actions ever so desperately,
Fighting these enemies that engaged us so mindlessly.


The Light is around us, that we all know,
May it bless us all, its grace upon us flow,
As we seek its wisdom, as we seek to learn,
How to let its passions in our hearts burn
It teaches us about our sacred connections
To honor and guard them in our deliberations
A connection between the self and all living,
A connection to be used for caring and giving
Times may come where it tests our wisdom
And in darkness such times are not seldom,
That lives are in the balance of strife and war,
And we may have to set out to battle afar.
Even so we must keep the connection sacred
Never to sever it needlessly in anger or hatred,
Never to let such strife make us see untrue,
Never to let such conflicts cloud our view.
But it is this very Respect for all living things,
That moves us to defend all defenseless beings,
In this Respect, we find the grace of the Light
We find its wisdom, guidance and strength to fight


In ourselves and all about,
Light lives without a doubt,
mends and prevents harm.
It is grace in purest form
Blessing all living beings,
Guiding us in our doings,
But through actions alone,
The Light's will can be done.
Following its ways so divine,
We reach salvation in time,
Cleansing the world anew,
From the shadows so cruel.
Great though Light may be,
It works through souls like me,
While devoted, I am but small,
Perhaps too little to change all,
Though Light makes spirits grow,
The world is large, we all know
But if I remain true to its ways,
I may share its graceful rays,
Work hard till all are blessed,
Without doubt till my final rest,
Even if its results I can not see,
Such is the lesson of Tenacity

Blessing of Water

Dear Light, be with us as we bless this water,
We chose water for it brings and feeds life,
We chose water for it blesses thirsty souls,
We chose water for it cools heated harts,
We chose water for it refreshes tired spirits.
May your holy spirit live in this water,
May your cleansing descend upon this water,
May your wisdom flow in this water,
May your enlightenment lighten this water,
We require water to wash away the shadows,
We require water to stay the darkness,
We require water to guide lost souls,
We require water to renew their spirits.
May the shadows be crushed by this water,
May the wicker be cleansed by this water,
May the vile be purged by this water,
May all that is good flourish with this water

Purity of mind

Make my mind once more a tool of the Light,
So it may understand the wrongs and right,
Like a mind reborn, without any prejudice
So must our mind become to talk of justice,
For justice to exist, one must understand,
No tale but the tale of the criminal mind,
Exposing what drove the mind to madness,
Forsaking our Light's blessing so careless.
With Light's strength, let us see the moment,
That cast our souls and heart into torment,
Let us find healing in Light's purest grace,
And a new path that leads to benevolent ways.
May I pass on the wisdom of Light's glory,
Have its righteous words uttered through me,
So contempt and pain are retained by none,
And have the mercey to see the crime undone.

Purity of heart

Dear Light, my silent guardian, I beseech thee,
As we listen to another confession, be with me,
Another heart and soul have called for our aid,
Let your blessing be with me in this burden great.
Once more we are asked to carry a sin's weight,
In a desperate plead for love that couldn't wait.
Lend me the strength for their burden to be heard,
Let our love be strong enough to mend their hurt,
May the Light's blessing keep us safe from harm,
So my deepest feelings may yield a cradle warm,
As we nurture the hungering heart, lost in pain.
Lest our suffering and our hurt be all in vain,
May Light's help make my heart and soul so strong
As their hearts confess to me, what they did wrong.
But until their salvation, let my mouth be wise,
And my heart bleed silent until the sun's rise,
May my face for them prove stalwart and fair,
My eyes show only love and no tear rest there,
Help me prepare for the that troublesome sleep,
Where I find Light's comfort and in silence weep.

Hymns and songs

Our sacred unity

Brothers and Sisters, we call you all,
Let us come here together at night fall,
In this night we tell you that we are one,
It is a holy bound, that cannot be undone,
For I vow to fight for your life and mine.
As we fight together in thei battle line.
You are my sword, I will be your shield,
Never to stop, till our enemies will yield.
But know that evermore, from this night on,
The time we shared, our lives were as one
And forever shall we bear in our heart.
That we fought together in these battles hard.
For this we bring a song, to share our respect
to our fellow soldier that we fight to protect
Let us talk as friends, to remember this night,
To honour our friendship and unity in the Light

My brother in darkness

Hello brother, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
To speak with you of deep repent,
Our hearts are hurt and souls silent,
And the voices of our loves are in our hearts,
but you only heed the darkness.
In lonelyness we have crawled,
In the dark we hid appalled,
And then we forgot our dreams in life,
Let our words lead to tears and strife,
While the voices of our loves were in our hearts,
Through this time of sadness
But rest assured, brother dear,
Hope and Light for us is near,
For even in these darkest holes,
it tries to heal our mourning souls,
And the voices of our loves are in our hearts,
still speaking,
whispering words of courage.
They speak of hope and love,
And the magnificence thereof,
The greatness that is still in us,
Work and deeds they entrusted to us,
That the voices of our loves be in our hearts,
and remain,
They only ask to listen.

Hymn: There is Light

There’s a light shining down on my pathway today,
Causing darkness and shadows to flee;
And my soul doth rejoice as I walk in the way,
There’s a light shining down upon me.
There’s a light shining down, down from the sky on me,
There’s a light that shines from the skies on me;
I will walk all my days in its wonderful rays,
There’s a light that shines from the skies on me.
Once I wandered in darkness and groped in the night,
Unto the Light for mercy I called;
The Light heard my sad cry, and opened my eyes,
And a light on my pathway did fall.
Light will bless everyone who will to Light come,
Light will turn all their darkness to day;
Will you come to the Light and so humbly bow,
That this light may shine down on your way?

Hymn: Light of Mine

This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
I'm going to let it shine.
I'm going to let it shine.
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.
On Monday, it gave me the gift of love;
On Tuesday, peace came from above.
On Wednesday, it told me to have faith;
On Thursday, it gave me a more grace.
On Friday, it told me to watch and pray
On Saturday, it told me just what to say,
On Sunday, it gave power divine
Just to let my little light shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.
Now some say you got to run and hide.
But we say there's no place to hide.
And some say let others decide,
But we say let the people decide.
Some say the time's not right,
But we say the time's just right.
If there's a dark corner in our land,
You got to let your little light shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.
