Prayer is a central part of Sikh devotional life with beautiful hymns (Hukamnama), meditations (Naam Simran), devotional readings (Paath) and five daily prayers (Nitnem Banis).

Below is a slideshow of Sikh prayers written by various gurus derived from Sikh scripture. Included in the slideshow is an excerpt from Chaupai Sahib, a prayer written by Guru Gobind Singh that many Sikhs turn to for strength and inspiration.
