Thankful Thursday September 3, 2020
Istijlal (Majesty), 16 Asma (Names) 177 B.E. - Thursday, September 3, 2020

"In prosperity, all praise is Thine, O Lord of the Worlds, and in its absence, all gratitude is Thine, O Desire of them that have recognized Thee!"
Bahá’u’lláh12

O Lord of the Universe,
I raise my voice in gratitude
for both prosperity
and its absence,
because both come to me in accordance
to Thy will.


On the first Thankful Thursday of September 2020,
I give thanks
for the beauty of a hot
late summer day,
for the cereal
I had for breakfast,
and for the coffee and cookies
I had
for my morning snack.
