Sing the glories of God each and every day; your afflictions shall be dispelled, and you shall be saved, my humble friend. (Shri Guru Granth Sahib, Section 7- Raag Gauree)
Night and day, meditate in remembrance on the One who will be your Help and Support in the end. (Shri Guru Granth Sahib, Section 7- Raag Gauree)
You Yourself are the ocean and the boat. You Yourself are this shore, and the one beyond. O All-knowing Lord, You are the True Way. The Shabad (hymn) is the Navigator to ferry us across. One who does not fear God shall live in fear; without the Guru, there is only pitch darkness. (Guru Nanak)
Oh God! You bless the poor with wealth, You have taken away countless sins, and the mind becomes immaculate and pure. You bestow Your Name upon your devotee, and all the desirers are fulfilled, and one’s tasks are perfectly accomplished. Service to the Lord, O’ our Sovereign King, is fruitful and rewarding.
O’ Lord you carry the capacity to do everything and you can make us to do anything, You are the creator and the cause of causes. No one is turned away from Your door emptyhanded, God eradicate the disease from the diseased person, and God take away the sorrows of the suffering.
God! All those who are helpless and have no place at all, You seat them upon the right place.
O’ Lord, make the mind of your devotee to devotional worship, Lord anyone who has not earned respect nowhere in the world, You bestows honor on that dishonored. Lord with your blessings the foolish and ignorant become smart and wise, and the fear of all fear disappear.(Bhairau Mahala 5, Fifth Guru, Arjan Dev Ji in Musical Notes of Bhairau Raga)
O Lord, protect me with Your Hand, thus my heart's desire be fulfilled. May my mind ever seek the refuge of Your Feet, and You sustain me as Your very Own. Lord! destroy all my enemies [diseased passions, instincts, impulses, evil thoughts and protect me with Your Hand. Thus make my house-hold servants and followers rest in peace. O Lord, extend Your Personal protection to me and kill all my enemies here and now (refers to our countless inner enemies.) May my this wish be fulfilled and I ever yearn to reflect my mind on You. Lord, Bless me that I should never abandon You and think of any one else. Whatever boons I seek I should obtain from You. Liberate all my servants and followers, pick each and every one and destroy them, who are obstacles in my well being. Pray, ferry me across, giving me Your Hand, and destroy the fear of death in me. O Mighty Lord of the Sword (All Wisdom), be ever at my back, and protect me. (excerpted from Chaupai Sahib by Guru Gobind Singh)
