Morning Prayer

Updated: Dec 13, 2023







Before reciting the Emanations Prayer: Stand facing the Sun during the day or facing the Moon at night (or north if you cannot see the sun or moon), wash hands, arms and face with clean water, using a container dedicated only to this purpose. Prayers can be recited both outdoors and indoors. With each stanza, the worshipper makes a full prostration to the ground.



Prayer of the Emanations


I worship and glorify the Great Father of the Lights with pure thought. With an innocent word, You are glorified and honoured: Blessed are You and Your majesty and Your Aeons. For in glory You have perfected their foundation. Your Power and Glory and Your Light and Word and Your Majesty and the Aeons of blessing and all Your counsel have been glorified. For you are God, the foundation of all grace and life and truth. I honour and glorify all gods, all the angels, all the splendours, all luminaries, all powers: these who are of the great and glorious Father, these that subsist in His Holiness, and in His Light a nourished, purified of all darkness and malignancy.


I honour and glorify the great powers, the enlightening angels, those who have come forth by their own wisdom, having subdued the darkness and its ruthless powers, which were prepared to fight against the sovereign of all; these are those who created the heavens and the earth and bound in them all the substance of contempt.


I adore and glorify the Son of Majesty, the Enlightening Mind, Christ King: he who came forth from the outer Aeons into the upper region, and from there to this lower creation, and who incomparably announced His wisdom and the ineffable mysteries to the people on earth, and who showed the whole universe the Way of Truth, and who gave this interpretation with all voices, and who distinguished Truth from lie and the Light from darkness and good from evil and the righteous from the wicked. From You every grace has been known to the universe, and life together with the Truth is being interpreted to every nation with all voices. He Himself became, for living souls, the Redeemer of the oppression of hostile bonds. I worship and glorify the Living God, virtuous and true: the one who with His own Power raised up all things, this upper and the lower region.


I honour and glorify the great luminaries, both the Sun and the Moon, and the virtuous powers within them: Which by wisdom overcome the enemies, and they enlighten the entire region, and govern all things, and judge the universe, and conduct the victorious souls to the great Aeon o f light.


I venerate and glorify the Five Great Lights: through which the whole universe came to exist and through which the heavens and the earth exist, for by participation in these power and beauty I venerate and glorify the Five Great Lights: through which the whole universe came to exist and through which the heavens and the earth exist, for by participation in these power and beauty.


I honour and glorify all the righteous: those who have escaped from all evil, those who have existed before, and now exist, and are coming into existence and are ready to come into existence because they have recognized Truth and all excellence; to the chaste and the steadfast so that all these whom I have honoured and glorified and invoked can assist me and bless me with favour and free me from all bonds, restriction and oppression and every reincarnation, and may provide me access to the great Aeon of Light, to which all the wise and upright in knowledge hope to.


(Recite in a low voice) Blessed is he who prays with this prayer often, and especially on the third day (Tuesday), asking with a pure heart and sincere speech for the forgiveness of the sins he commits. Amen



Opening Prayer


Light of the Aeon, splendour of the First Thought, hidden within the folds of the dark, I greet you with this dawn.


Hymn - choose a suitable hymn from our book of psalms.


Pleroma of Glory, in your boundless radiance, I bask, yearning for the wisdom you bestow, acknowledging the spark of divine within my mortal frame.

With the break of the dawn, so too does the Light within awaken, protected by the vestige of your wisdom, I navigate the stark path of the mortal realm.

Knower of the Endless Immensity, the divine and the profound, illuminate my path, guide me throughout the day and throughout my life.


Reading - check lectionary for today's reading.



The Collect


Allow your light to pierce the veils of ignorance, enveloping me in the cloak of the Gnosis, give me strength to face my daily trials and tribulations in the name of the truth that seeks to free us.

May your radiance guide and guard me. For each moment is a whisper of divinity, every breath, a testament of your grace.


Collect 2


In your ever-present luminescence, the darkness retreats, in the awareness of the divine, the chains of ignorance are broken.


Collect 3


Until the twilight comes and the journey of the day finds its end, I bear the torch - the light of wisdom, love, and understanding.


In the name of the Father of Greatness, the Twin, and the Living Spirit, I offer my heart, my mind, my soul.

All praise and honour to the everlasting Light. Amen.
