- 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.
Baha’i Blog 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 Toowoomba, Australia with Natasha Chiang singing “精神品德 (Spiritual Qualities)” from a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Toowoomba, Australia on 23 February 2020.
Lyrics & Quote
O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.Abdu’l-Baha
O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.
