In 1994, I wrote a prayer for a spiritual group that met twice a month. We used it as sort of a focus for the evening's work. I still carry a laminated copy of it.

A Circle's Prayer
-- © Brian Weis, 12/21/1994 --

We pray for Spirits' aid to remember our purpose in gathering here
that we might exercise discipline and courtesy,
speak responsibly and listen consciously

We pray that Spirit will keep us mindful that
there are no leaders or followers on this path;
no gurus or disciples;
that we all, each of us, are teachers and students in our own right;
and we both learn and instruct through the sharing of our experiences

And we pray for the gracious awareness
that the souls here are no better than souls elsewhere
but that all souls are striving toward perfection in love
