Make All Mankind As Stars - Prayer for unity by 'Abdu'l-Baha, choral music by Pierre Weber
Choir sing, a Capella style, this beautiful prayer from the Baha'i Writings.
The oneness of humanity is so essential towards ending prejudices of all kinds. We truly are all equal and we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. The choir hopes your hearts are touched by this video of a prayer for unity from the Baha'i writings. The video was released in honour of the Centenary of the passing of its author: 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
Here is the prayer:
O my God! O my God! Verily, I invoke Thee and supplicate before Thy threshold, asking Thee that all Thy mercies may descend upon these souls. Specialize them for Thy favor and Thy truth.
O Lord! Unite and bind together the hearts, join in accord all the souls, and exhilarate the spirits through the signs of Thy sanctity and oneness. O Lord! Make these faces radiant through the light of Thy oneness. Strengthen the loins of Thy servants in the service of Thy kingdom.
O Lord, Thou possessor of infinite mercy! O Lord of forgiveness and pardon! Forgive our sins, pardon our shortcomings, and cause us to turn to the kingdom of Thy clemency, invoking the kingdom of might and power, humble at Thy shrine and submissive before the glory of Thine evidences.
O Lord God! Make us as waves of the sea, as flowers of the garden, united, agreed through the bounties of Thy love. O Lord! Dilate the breasts through the signs of Thy oneness, and make all mankind as stars shining from the same height of glory, as perfect fruits growing upon Thy tree of life.
Verily, Thou art the Almighty, the Self-Subsistent, the Giver, the Forgiving, the Pardoner, the Omniscient, the One Creator. ~ 'Abdu'l-Bahá
