Harmonizing with God

Let us reflect today on the third prayer in the Spiritual Healing ceremony.
Oh Thou, who art all-powerful and all-pervading, the light of all souls, the life of all beings, the healer of all hearts, forgive us our shortcomings, and we pray, free us from all pain and suffering. Make us worthy to be Thy instruments, so that in turn we may free others from pain and suffering, and that we may reflect upon all of humanity Thy light, Thy life, Thy joy and Thy peace.
Read or say this prayer several times out loud, slowly. Focus on how we address God as all-powerful and all-pervading, the light of all souls, the life of all beings, the healer of all hearts. Take a moment to notice what you experience when you attune to and acknowledge God in this way.
Now read or say the prayer again and focus this time on our aspiration to reflect upon all of humanity Thy light, Thy life, Thy joy and Thy peace. Take a moment to notice what you experience as you attune to reflecting the light, life, joy and peace of the all-powerful and all-pervading.
Then, read Murshid’s teachings below about harmonizing with God and the secret of healing.
The innermost being of man is the real being of God… All meditation and contemplation are taught with this purpose: to harmonize one’s innermost being with God so that He is seeing, hearing, thinking through us, and our being is a ray of His light.
Hazrat Inayat Khan, Vol. IX, The Unity of Religious Ideals, Part 1, Unity and Uniformity
The secret of healing is to rise by the power of belief above the limitations of this world of variety, that one may touch by the power of intelligence the oneness of the whole Being. It is there that one becomes charged with the almighty power, and it is by the power of that attainment that one is able to help oneself and others in their pain and suffering. Verily, spirit has all the power there is.
Hazrat Inayat Khan, Vol. IV, Healing and the Mind World, Part 1, Health, 8. Spirit Power
What light do these teachings throw on the third prayer and on what we aspire to do in our Spiritual Healing work?
With Loving Greetings from Shakti and Shamsher
