Prayer for Saturday (Birth of Bahá’u’lláh)

Bahá’u’lláh is the founder of the Bahá’í faith.

Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! Every man
of insight confesseth Thy sovereignty and Thy
dominion, and every discerning eye perceiveth the
greatness of Thy majesty and the compelling power
of Thy might. The winds of tests are powerless to
hold back them that enjoy near access to Thee from
setting their faces towards the horizon of Thy glory,
and the tempests of trials must fail to draw away and
hinder such as are wholly devoted to Thy will from
approaching Thy court.

Methinks, the lamp of Thy love is burning in their
hearts, and the light of Thy tenderness is lit within
their breasts. Adversities are incapable of estranging
them from Thy Cause, and the vicissitudes of fortune
can never cause them to stray from Thy pleasure.

I beseech Thee, O my God, by them and by the
sighs which their hearts utter in their separation from
Thee, to keep them safe from the mischief of Thine
adversaries, and to nourish their souls with what Thou
hast ordained for Thy loved ones on whom shall come
no fear and who shall not be put to grief.

(from PRAYERS AND MEDITATIONS by Bahá’u’lláh)
