The Universal Prayer
Also Known as "O Parvardigar" or "The Master's Prayer,"   this prayer was dictated by Meher Baba in 1953

    O Parvardigar -- the Preserver and  Protector of all.  You are without Beginning, and without End;
    Non-dual, beyond comparison, and none can measure you.
    You are without colour, without expression,  without form, and without attributes.
    You are unlimited and unfathomable, beyond imagination and conception, eternal and imperishable.
    You are indivisible; and none can see You, but with eyes Divine.
    You always were, You always are, and You always will be;
    You are everywhere, You are in everything;  and
    You are also beyond everywhere and beyond everything.
    You are in the firmament and in the depths;
    You are manifest and unmanifest, on all planes and beyond all planes.
    You are in the three worlds, and also beyond the three worlds; You are imperceptible and independent.
    You are the Creator, the Lord of lords, the Knower of all minds and hearts;
    You are Omnipotent and Omnipresent You are Knowledge Infinite, Power Infinite, and Bliss Infinite.
    You are the Ocean of Knowledge, All Knowing, Infinitely Knowing,
         the Knower of the past, the present, and the future, and You are  Knowledge Itself.
    You are All-merciful and eternally   benevolent; You are the soul of souls, the One with  infinite attributes.
    You are the Trinity of Truth, Knowledge,  and Bliss, 
    You are the Source of Truth, the Ocean  of Love;
    You are the Ancient One, the Highest of the High; You are Prabhu and Parameshwar;     
    You are the Beyond- God, and the Beyond Beyond-God also;
    You are Parabrahma, Allah,  Elahi, Yezdan, Ahuramazda, and God the Beloved.
     You are named Ezad -- the only One worthy of worship.


The Prayer of Repentence
        This prayer was dictated by Meher Baba in 1952

      We repent, O God most merciful, for all our sins; for every thought that was false or unjust or unclean;
for every word spoken that ought not to have been spoken; for every deed done that ought not to have been done.
       We repent for every deed and word and thought inspired by selfishness, and for every deed and word and thought inspired by hatred.
       We repent most specially for every lustful thought and every lustful action; for every lie; for all hypocrisy; for every promise given but not fulfilled; and for all slander and backbiting.
       Most specially also we repent for every action that has brought ruin to others; for every word and deed that has given others pain; and for every wish that pain should befall others.
       In Your Unbounded Mercy, we ask You to forgive us, O God, for all these sins committed by us, and to forgive us for our constant failures to think and speak and act according to Your Will.
