In this prayer, Sayyidi Habib Umar (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him) shows how much we need to seek Allah’s strength and assistance in all our affairs. This prayer is taken from his collection of prayers using Allah’s beautiful names in which he calls upon Allah by His beautiful names and then asks Him to bestow prayers upon His Beloved by those names. Finally, he asks Allah for a portion of those attributes which belong to Allah and which He has bestowed upon His Messenger ﷺ.
اللَّهُمَّ يا اللهُ يا قَوِيُّ صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ القَوَيِّ بِكَ و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً وقَوِ لِي بِهِ الإِيمانَ و اليَقِينَ و أَمَدَّني بِقَوَّةٍ مِنْ قُوَّتِكَ في جَميعِ قُوَايَ الظَّاهِرَةِ و البَاطِنَةِ في كُلِّ شَأْنٍ و حِينٍ و ارْحَمْ بِهِ ضَعْفِي و كُنْ لي مُعِيناً

O Allāh, O Most Powerful, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet who through You is powerful, and upon his Family and Companions, and by him strengthen my faith and certainty and assist me with Your power in all my inward and outward capacities in every affair and at all times, and through him show mercy to me in my weakness and be my supporter.
