My nephew has been unwell today so I thought I would share a prayer I have been saying for him.

“O Thou peerless Lord! Let this suckling babe be nursed from the breast of Thy loving-kindness, guard it within the cradle of Thy safety and protection and grant that it be reared in the arms of Thy tender affection.”

It’s a prayer by `Abdu’l Bahá and like many of his prayers I find it extraordinarily beautiful. Some of the nicest prayers were revealed by him, and his writings are often those I turn to most. He was an amazing man who spent most of his life as a prisoner and then when he was finally released he used his remaining life to travel the world and spread the word of Bahá’u’lláh.
