Prayers to the Emperor
Prayer of Adulation to the Emperor
to be recited every morning:
O immortal Emperor: Have mercy on us, miserable unworthy that we are.
O master of the galaxy, protect your flock from the alien.
O keeper of the light, guide our darkened path with your radiance.
We are your warriors and we are servants to thee,
we stand free from the blindness of heart,
free from hypocrisy, vainglory and deceits,
but captive to hatred, malice, and anger, to the filth, the alien, the heretic.
By thy agony and bloody sweat; by thy Golden Throne and death; by thy destruction and re-emergence as the God of men, keep and strengthen us, who fight for thee.
Libation to the Emperor
to be used whenever thanks are to be given to the Emperor:
The Emperor is our guiding light, a beacon of hope for humanity in a galaxy of darkness.
As we serve Him, He is our greatest servant.
As we pray to Him, His thoughts are only for us.
And in the dark, when the shadows threaten, the Emperor is with us, in spirit and in fact.
Prayers to be used when traveling the Warp
Prayer of Safe Return

O eternal Emperor, who alone watches us,

preserve us from the perils of the warp,
that we may be a safeguard to the domain of men.
Prayer for the Lost and Endangered
To be used in times of emergency when traveling the Warp:
Most powerful and glorious Emperor,
who commands the winds and eddies of the galaxy,
we miserable men are adrift in peril,
we cry unto thee for help, save us, or we will perish.
We see how great and terrible thou art,
we fear you and offer our awe,
we fear naught but your wrath ,
and beg a chance to prove ourselves,
so let us not die in the tumultuous of the warp.
