Islamic Prayer

This is the first prayer I received back from a very gracious Imam Leader, named Sameh. I have always been interested in Islam as a religion because it has some very good ideas to follow. My name means Faith in Arabic, and I always wanted to get more information about the religion. When I got the following prayer in my inbox it made me realize that Islam is very much like any other religion out there. Please enjoy the following...

Islamic Supplications
Written by Imam / Sameh Asal
Islamic Center of Raleigh
All praises and thanks are due to God, the Creator and Lord of all that exists, and peace and blessings be upon all His Messengers.
O God, You are the Creator of the heavens and earth and all that exists! You are the Lord of Majesty and Power and You have power over everything. Exalted and Glorified be You.
O God! You are peace and the ultimate peace comes from You alone; blessed are You, O Lord of Majesty and Honor. Guide us all to the Straight Path that pleases you and open our minds and eyes to the truth.
O God! Teach us what is beneficial for us, benefit us with what you have taught us and increase us in knowledge.
O Our Lord! You are the All-Merciful, Ever-Merciful shower us all with Your all-encompassing mercy and send us your blessings.
We ask you, our Lord, the Granter of security, to bless us and our families, friends, neighbors, communities and the whole worlds with everlasting peace and security.
O’ God! You are the Creator of heavens and earth and what is in them. You have created human beings male and female and made us nations and tribes so that we may know one another and live in harmony, and you told us that the best among us in Your Sight are the most pious.
