I have risen this morning by Thy grace, O my God, and left my home trusting wholly in Thee, and committing myself to Thy care. Send down, then, upon me, out of the heaven of Thy mercy, a blessing from Thy side, and enable me to return home in safety even as Thou didst enable me to set out under Thy protection with my thoughts fixed steadfastly upon Thee.

There is none other God but Thee, the One, the Incomparable, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Bahá’u’lláh

أَصْبَحْتُ يا إِلهِي بِفَضْلِكَ وَأَخْرُجُ مِنَ البَيْتِ مُتَوَكِّلاً عَلَيْكَ وَمُفَوِّضاً أَمْرِيْ إِلَيْكَ فَأَنْزِلْ عَلَيَّ مِنْ سَماءِ رَحْمَتِكَ بَرَكَةً مِنْ عِنْدِكَ ثُمَّ أَرْجِعْنِيْ إِلى البَيْتِ سالِماً كما أَخْرَجْتَنِيْ مِنْهُ سالِمًا مُسْتَقِيماً لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ الفَرْدُ الواحِدُ العَليْمُ الحَكِيم

حضرت بهاءالله

« I have risen this morning by Thy grace… » is a prayer often recited by Baháʼís as they leave their homes in the morning. It is extracted from a very lengthy Tablet of Baháʼuʼlláh to Mírzá ʻAlí-Muḥammad Varqá, the eminent Baháʼí poet and martyr.
