Prayer at Opening

Most holy and glorious Lord God, the Great Architect of the Universe, the giver of all good gifts and graces. Thou hast promised that, "where two or three are gathered together in thy name, thou wilt be in their midst and bless them." In they name we have assembled, and in thy name we desire to proceed in all our doings. Grant that the sublime principles of Freemasonry may so subdue every discordant passion within us - so harmonize and enrich our hearts with thine own Love and goodness - that the Lodge at this time may humbly reflect that order and beauty which reign forever before thy throne. Amen — Response by the brethren. — So mote it be.
