Prayer for Saturday (Day of the Covenant)

Today is the Bah’áí holiday of the Day of the Covenant.
It is also Al-Hijra, New Year’s Day in the Islamic calendar.

O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers.
I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge.
I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being.
O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me.
I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself.
I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.

(‘Abdu’l-Bahá)
