We are asked to recognize a tree by its fruits (Matthew 7:20). Prayers are the first fruits of religion—its heart and soul. They are the heavenly lights that guide us to the presence of God and manifest His glory and grandeur. The prayers offered in this book are a basketful of fruits from the Vineyard of Bahá’u’lláh—the Glory of God. They have the power to inspire, to elevate and unite the followers of all religions. They serve as the center of unity and peace for all nations.
While praying, we forget our differences and remember our oneness. The believers may differ about doctrines and prophecies, but in praying they become as one soul with one voice. Whether they call themselves Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, Christians, or Muslims, while praying they discover their common origin. They learn that they worship the same God, in the same spirit—that of love and devotion—and with the same aspirations and desires.
This book presents 119 prayers from Bahá’u’lláh, the Báb, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, and many quotations on the honor and rules of praying from Bahá’í, Biblical and Islamic Scriptures.
