The Great Invocation
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men--
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Many religions believe in a World Teacher or Saviour, knowing him under such names as the Christ, the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Bodhisattva, and the Messiah, and these terms are used in some of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist and Jewish versions of the Great Invocation.

A PRAYER FOR POWER AND LIGHT
The Great Invocation is a prayer of ancient origin--it is a mantric formula of tremendous potency that is helping to bring about changes and readjustments within all aspects of our planetary life. It is a world prayer, used by people of all faiths and spiritual inclinations, to aid our planet during this difficult transition period.
On the surface, the beauty and strength of this Invocation lies in its simplicity, and in its expression of certain central truths that most people, innately and normally, accept -- the truth of the existence of a basic Intelligence to Whom we vaguely give the name of God; the truth that, behind all outer seeming, the motivating power of the universe is Love; the truth that great Individuals have cyclically come to Earth and embodied that love so that we could understand; the truth that both love and intelligence are effects of what is called the Will of God, and finally the self-evident truth that only through Humanity itself can the divine Plan work out.
It is natural, at times, to feel powerless when faced with the enormity of the pain and suffering upon our planet; we sense the need yet often feel our attempts to contribute in any truly constructive manner are futile. In the past, individuals generally turned to prayer for protection and for the alleviation of suffering in their personal lives. Today, as we enter into a new age, humanity is collectively demonstrating a deepened understanding of the power of group prayer and invocation for the benefit of humanity and the planet as a whole. The focused and dynamic use of the Great Invocation gives all people everywhere a potent means of contacting and distributing powerful spiritual energies, thereby contributing to the upliftment and transformation of planet Earth. Through its collective use we bring light and love and power to bear upon all aspects of our planetary life, irradiating and uplifting human consciousness -- contributing towards the transformation of the largely material focus of our world into one that is more truly spiritual.
The focused use of the Great Invocation causes powerful changes in one’s life -- one’s attitudes, intentions, character and goals will be changed and made spiritually useful. “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he” is a basic law in nature; the constant turning of the mind to the need for light and the prospect of illumination cannot and will not be ineffectual.
The Invocation is now translated into over 70 languages and is used by countless individuals. Will you join them in using it every day-with thought and dedication? By using the Invocation and encouraging others to use it, no particular group or organisation is sponsored. It belongs to all humanity.
