A prayer for decision-making

Thou seest me, O my God, detached from all save Thee and cleaving unto Thee. Guide me, then, in all mine affairs unto that which profiteth me for the glory of Thy Cause and the loftiness of the station of Thy loved ones.

اَللهُ أَبْهى

يَا بَهَاءُ الْأَبْهَى

يَا اَللهُ الْمُسْتَغَاث

يَا إِلَهَ الْمُسْتَغَاث

إِنَّا كُلٌّ لِلهِ رَاضُون

إِنَّا كُلٌّ لِلهِ رَاضِيَات

سُبْحَانَ اللّه ذِي الطَّلْعَةِ وَالْجَمَال

بِسْمِ اللهِ الْأَطْهَرِ الْأَطْهَر

سُبْحَانَ اللّه ذِي الْعَظَمَةِ وَالْجَلَالِ وَالْمُوهِبَةِ وَالْإِفْضَالِ

سُبْحَانَ اللّه ذِي الْمُلْكِ وَالْمَلَكُوت

اَلْعَظَمَةُ لِلّهِ رَبِّ مَا يُرَی وَمَا لَا يُرَی رَبِّ الْعَالَمِين

مَنْ يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَی الله فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ مَنْ يَتَّقِ الله يَجْعَلْ لَهُ مَخْرَجاً

إِلَهِي تَرَانِي مُنْقَطِعاً إِلَيْكَ وَمُتَمَسِّكاً بِكَ فَاهْدِنِي فِي الْأُمُور مَا يَنْفَعُنِي لِعِزِّ أَمْرِكَ وَعُلُوِّ مَقَامِ أَحِبَّائِكَ

The Writings of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb include many short verses that are intended to be recited under various circumstances. Since we first launched the Utterance Project nearly a year and a half ago, we have received many requests to cover these verses in our videos, along with a few other very brief invocations and phrases. We have been carefully noting these, and have decided at last to make this video that features them all. We hope you find it useful and spiritually uplifting!
