“O thou who art advancing to the Dawning-point of…”

O thou who art advancing to the Dawning-point of Lights!
Extend the hands of communion unto the sacred and brilliant Threshold and read the following prayer:
O my God! O my God! Glory be unto Thee for that Thou hast confirmed me to the confession of Thy Oneness, attracted me unto the word of Thy Singleness, enkindled me by the fire of Thy love, and occupied me with Thy mention and the service of Thy friends and maid-servants.
O Lord, help me to be meek and lowly and strengthen 52 me in severing myself from all things and in holding to the hem of the garment of Thy Glory, so that my heart may be filled with Thy love and leave no space for the love of the world and the attachment to its qualities.
O God! Sanctify me from all else save Thee, purge me from the dross of sins and transgressions and cause me to possess a spiritual heart and conscience.
Verily Thou art merciful and verily Thou art the Generous, the Helper.
