हे ईश्वर! मेरा मार्गदर्शन कर, मेरी रक्षा कर, मुझे एक प्रदीप्त दीपक और जगमगाता सितारा बना दे। तू शक्तिशाली और बलशाली है

अब्दुल-बहा

خدایا هدایت نما حفظ فرما سراج روشن کن ستاره درخشنده نما توئی مقتدر و توانا

حضرت عبدالبهاء

This most beloved of all Bahá’í prayers for children was originally included in a letter from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to a certain “Mrs. E.C.” (Ella Cooper) and published in Star of the West, vol. 9, no. 10 (September 8, 1918), p. 114.

You can see the prayer in the second-to-last paragraph on the right-hand column of that page by following
