SOPHIA PRAYER SEQUENCE

1. Prologue to St. John

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,

And the Word was God.

This was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through the Word,

And nothing that was made was made without the Word.

In the Word was life, And this life was the light of humanity,

And the light shines in the darkness,

And the darkness over cometh it not.

2. Glory Be (father and sophia)

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Glory be to the Mother and to the Daughter and to the Holy Soul, here and there and in the Circle of All. Amen.

3. Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (for Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever).Amen.

4. Our Mother

Our Mother, Thou who art in the darkness of the underworld,

May the holiness of Thy name shine anew in our remembering,

May the breath of Thy awakening kingdom warm the hearts of all who wander homeless,

May the resurrection of Thy will renew eternal faith even unto the depths of physical substance. Receive this day the living memory of Thee from human hearts,

Who implore thee to forgive the sin of forgetting Thee,

And are ready to fight against temptation, which has led Thee to existence in darkness,

That through the Deed of the Son,

The immeasurable pain of the Father be stilled, By the liberation of all beings

From the tragedy of Thy withdrawal.

For Thine is the homeland and the boundless wisdom and the ail-merciful grace, for all and everything in the Circle of All. Amen.

5. Lady of all Peoples (1951 appearance in Amsterdam)

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father,

Send now Thy Spirit over the earth.

Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all peoples,

That they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war.

May the Lady of All Peoples, who once was Mary,

Intercede on our behalf. Amen.

10. Prologue to Sophia

In the beginning was Sophia, and Sophia was with God, united with the Logos.

Sophia was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through the Logos and Sophia

And nothing that was made was made without the Logos and Sophia.

Sophia is Wisdom,

And Wisdom is the light of creation.

The light shines in the heavens

and the angels radiate it forth.

(EDITOR'S NOTE; this prayer sequence was first developed by Valentin Tomberg and included the saying of the Hail Mary's together with the 7 I AM sayings of Christ, which correspond to the 7 chakras. Later, to this was added the 7 sayings of Christ from the cross and the prologues by Robert Powell as set forth in his book, HERMETIC ASTROLOGY, VOL II (1989) and students should consult his work for an explanation of the reasons for the full/new moon cycles, etc)
