Jamál (Beauty), 5 Kalimát (Words) 174 Badi - Sunday, July 16, 2017 CE

"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."

Bahá’u’lláh1

This is my favorite evening prayer, and it was the first Baha'i Prayer I memorized. I read or recite it every night either before or after I turn out the light to go to sleep. If I go to bed too early I wake up about midnight, if that happens then I read the Midnight prayer by 'Abdu'l-Baha. I read or recite the prayer by Baha'u'llah, The Bab, and 'Abdu'l-Baha because I can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit when I read them.



I need to focus on finishing poems 28, 29, 30, 23, 33, 34, and 36 this week. I can still work on the other, and list any ideas I come up with. However I need to finish those seven poem sometime between today and Friday.

Goals accomplished today.

I went to the Baha'i Center this afternoon for the July Devotional Services. While I was there I purchased two book The Sufferings of Baha'u'llah and Call of the Nightingale. Reading these books should give me a lot of ideas for the rest of the 200 poems I'm dedicating to the Blessed Beauty. The subject of today's service was "All true healing comes from God", which is a quote from 'Abdu'l-Baha. The subject of the August 20 meeting is "Will of God".
