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. These gatherings are open to all and are intended to embrace that attitude of prayer and practice of devotion that is universal to all religions.
In this short animation, Baha’i Blog presents a description of devotional gatherings.
In diverse settings throughout the world, Baha’is and their friends unite with one another in prayer. Whether in urban settings or villages, these devotional gatherings consist largely of reading prayers and passages from the Baha’i sacred texts in an informal yet respectful atmosphere. A spirit of communal worship is generated by these simple gatherings and the spirit begins to permeate the community’s collective endeavours.
