- 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.
This video from the Baha’i World News Service (BWNS) shares how, sitting on a hilltop in Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea (PNG), is the emerging Baha’i House of Worship—a sacred structure that represents the union of devotion and service to society. This central theme, which underlies the purpose of all Baha’i Houses of Worship, is inspiring residents in the area to assist with the development of the temple in that country, most recently with a weaving project.
