- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
At a recent institutional meeting held in Suva, Fiji, participants from several clusters around the islands of Fiji gathered. Amongst the many songs and prayers shared, were these three beautiful original compositions, brought to you with love from the beautiful islands of the Pacific. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

“How we long to see humanity illumined with the love of its Lord; how we long to hear His praise on every tongue. Knowing the ardency of our wish, you know then the emotion with which, when we lay our heads upon the Most Holy Threshold, we implore Baha’u’llah to make you, and all who cherish His precious Faith, ever more perfect channels of His ineffable grace.”
