Prayer

It is suggested that, following the opening devotions, you dedicate some time to helping the children to begin the memorisation of the first prayer that you have selected for them to learn by heart from this set.


"Glory be to Thee, O my God!  Make manifest the rivers of Thy sovereign might, that the waters of Thy Unity may flow through the inmost realities of all things, in such wise that the banner of Thine unfailing guidance may be raised aloft in the kingdom of thy command and the stars of Thy divine splendour may shine brightly in the heaven of thy majesty.

Potent art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee.  Thou, verily, art the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" I beseech Thee, O my God, by all the transcendent glory of Thy Name, to clothe Thy loved ones in the robe of justice and to illumine their beings with the light of trustworthiness.  Thou art the One that hath power to do as He pleaseth and Who holdeth within His grasp the reins of all things, visible and invisible."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I have wakened in Thy shelter, O my God, and it becometh him that seeketh that shelter to abide within the Sanctuary of Thy protection and the Stronghold of Thy defence.  Illumine my inner being, O my Lord, with the splendours of the Dayspring of Thy Revelation, even as Thou didst illumine my outer being with the morning light of Thy favour."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"O my God, my Master, the Goal of my desire!  This, Thy servant, seeketh to sleep in the shelter of Thy mercy, and to repose beneath the canopy of Thy grace, imploring Thy care and Thy protection."

I beg of Thee, O my Lord, by Thine eye that sleepeth not, to guard mine eyes from beholding aught beside Thee.  Strengthen, then, their vision that they may discern Thy signs, and behold the Horizon of Thy Revelation.  Thou art He before the revelations of Whose omnipotence the quintessence of power hath trembled.

No God is there but thee, the Almighty, the All-Subduing, The Unconditioned."

 Memorisation


"The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of  the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men."
