“Prayer for Decisions” by Jeremy Lambshead

Baha’i Blog’s Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Chicago, USA with Jeremy Lambshead singing “Prayer for Decisions”, based on a prayer by Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Chicago, USA, December, 2018.

Here is the prayer plus the instructions for the prayer, followed by the lyrics and chords below:

In regard to his affairs, let him repeat nineteen times:

“Thou seest me, O my God, detached from all save Thee and cleaving unto Thee. Guide me, then, in all mine affairs unto that which profiteth me for the glory of Thy Cause and the loftiness of the station of Thy loved ones.”

Let him then reflect upon the matter and undertake whatever cometh to mind. This vehement opposition of the enemies will indeed give way to supreme prosperity.

—Baha’u’llah
