I was recently surfing the Internet and came across this “prayer” of Abdul Baha (son of Bahaullah, the founder of the Bahai Faith) for the land of America. This prayers was made in 1912 when Abdul Baha travelled to America. A Bahai website says that “Abdul Baha called on America to become a land of spiritual distinction and leadership and gave a powerful vision of America’s spiritual destiny — to lead the way in establishing the oneness of humanity.”
The prayer goes like this:
“O Thou kind Lord!
This gathering is turning to Thee.
These hearts are radiant with Thy love.
These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings.
