Prayer -- Abdu'l-Baha

Prayer For America

O Thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to Thee.

These hearts are radiant with Thy Love. These minds and spirits are

exhilarated by message of Thy glad tidings.

O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual

degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just

government victorious.

Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of

humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most

glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world. O God! This

American nation is worthy of Thy favors and is deserving of Thy mercy.

Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy bounty and bestowal.
