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

Today is the Bahá’í holiday celebrating the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, founder of the Bahá’í faith. It is also Naraka Chaturdashi, the second day of the Hindu festival of Diwali, and the time of the Buffalo Dance for the Tewa peoples in southwestern U.S.

Being broke is a temporary situation.
Being poor is a state of mind.
~ Mike Todd

O God! O God! This is a broken-winged bird and his flight is very slow—assist him so that he may fly toward the apex of prosperity and salvation, wing his way with the utmost joy and happiness throughout the illimitable space, raise his melody in Thy Supreme Name in all the regions, exhilarate the ears with this call, and brighten the eyes by beholding the signs of guidance.

O Lord! I am single, alone and lowly. For me there is no support save Thee, no helper except Thee and no sustainer beside Thee. Confirm me in Thy service, assist me with the cohorts of Thy angels, make me victorious in the promotion of Thy Word and suffer me to speak out Thy wisdom amongst Thy creatures. Verily, Thou art the helper of the weak and the defender of the little ones, and verily Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty and the Unconstrained.

(‘Abdu’l-Bahá)
