Masonic Prayer For Peace


SUPREME GRANDMASTER,

RULER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH,

 

*

WE MOST REVERENTLY INVOKE THY BLESSING

in these troubled times.

All about us we see evidences of men

abandoning the basic Faith of their Fathers;

We see new gods placed in the temples of everyday life;

We see a discarding of the moral principles

that have proven their worth throughout the ages.

About us and everywhere

we see people living in fear,

shackled with tension

and cringing from frayed nerves.

THY children are seeking

for peace of mind and serenity of soul,

but find neither in the market place,

the palaces of pleasure, or the ways of godliness.

**

Grant that all men may again plant in their hearts

the Cardinal Virtues of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

May men everywhere follow the precepts of Freemasonry

and have the strength, the courage

and the strength to do THY Divine Will;

to meet upon the Level of equality,

to live by the Plumb-line of virtue,

and act always on the square.

***

Grant, Oh GOD,

that liberty and equal opportunity

may exist in all lands

and that the dignity of the individual

be recognized everywhere.

May the Temples of Freemasonry

throughout the world ever be open

to give unto all men the spiritual strength

to meet the vital problems of the hour,

to the betterment of all men

and the glory of Thy HOLY NAME.

****

Almighty Father,

Thou who understandest

our thoughts afar off,

knowest that individual Freemasons

belong to various creeds,

yet each and every one believes in THEE;

that all believe in the Fatherhood of God

and the Brotherhood of Man;

that THOU Holy Script

is the rule and guide of their conduct;

that though Masons hold various political beliefs,

yet they believe in equal treatment for all before the law,

and THOU knowest that

these fundamental beliefs make for complete Harmony.

*****

Inspire us, therefore, Gracious Father,

to instill these gentle precepts of Freemasonry

in the hearts of all men,

so that Brotherly Love

may prevail throughout the World.

Cast the Light of THY Wisdom

on our labors in the quarries of the Craft,

that we may better shape

the stones of Faith, Hope and Charity

for the erection of that house

not made with hands, Eternal in the Heavens.

 

SO MOTE IT BE.

 

 

Masonic Prayer


GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE

*

TEACH US the benefits of living

So as to cause our lives to be as pure and spotless

As was the first Masonic apron presented to us.

**

MAKE US careful about our reputation

As individual Masons

And as a Fraternity.

***

REMIND US of the blessings

Which flow from purity of heart

And blamelessness of conduct

In a world where scandal seems to be the rule

Rather than the exception.

****

GUIDE US on our way as we journey from this place

And STRENGTHEN US to make purity of life

And rectitude of conduct

Our AIM.

 

AMEN.

 

 

Masonic Prayer


GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE

Show us how to take our lives in their rude and natural state

And dress , square, and polish them

So that we might become disciplined and educated.

Keep us everlastingly at the task of self mastery.

Enable us to uncover the Perfect Ashlar within us

By removing the superfluous material

Which encrusts our lives

And teach us how best to perfect our spiritual edifice

Amen.

An Ancient Masonic Prayer (4th Century)


GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE,

MAY I be no man’s enemy, and may I be the friend of that which is eternal and abides.

May I never quarrel with those nearest me; and if I do may I be reconciled quickly.

May I never devise evil against any man.

May I love, seek and attain only that which is happiness and envy none.

May I never rejoice in the ill-fortune of one who has wronged me.

When I have done or said what is wrong, may I never wait the rebuke of others, but always rebuke myself .

May I accustom myself to be gentle, and never angry with people because of circumstances.

May I never discuss who is wicked and what wicked things he has done, but know good men and follow their footsteps.

AMEN.
