Prayers for Children
guide me, protect me, make of me a shining lamp and a brilliant star.
Thou art the Mighty and the Powerful. — ‘ABDU’L-BAHÁ
Educate these children.
These children are the plants of Thine orchard,
the flowers of Thy meadow, the roses of Thy garden.
Let Thy rain fall upon them;
let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with Thy love.
Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained, grow and develop,
and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver.
Thou art the Compassionate. —‘ABDU’L-BAHÁ
O my Lord!
Make Thy beauty to be my food, and Thy presence my drink,
and Thy pleasure my hope, and praise of Thee my action,
and remembrance of Thee my companion,
and the power of Thy sovereignty my succorer,
and Thy habitation my home,
and my dwelling-place the seat Thou hast sanctified from the limitations imposed upon them who are shut out as by a veil from Thee.
Thou art, verily, the Almighty, the All-Glorious, the Most Powerful. —BAHÁ’U’LLÁH
