Nichiren Shu Service

Gongyo with Additional Prayers

Authored by Ryusho Jeffus

The basic Sacred Service of Nichiren Shu as performed at Myosho-ji, Wonderful Voice Temple is presented in this book in the order followed at this temple. Also provided in this book are some additional prayers, such as Memorial Prayers, Prayers for the Sick, Prayer of St. Francis, Prayer Before Meals.

Frequently in the course of our daily lives we face challenges which we may feel would be more appropriately addressed through prayers other than the standard prayer offered traditionally during Nichiren Shu services.

In my work as a hospital chaplain I have been called upon to provide many such prayers, frequently from a Christian perspective. Even occasionally I have been asked to pray from a strictly spiritual perspective without any reference to deity or supreme being or reference to any organized religion.

In the few pages which follow I offer not only a couple of suggested prayers but also my understanding of how to construct your own personal prayer when the words of others do not fit your needs.
