I say a little prayer for you

I just wanted to share this prayer. It's become my mantra lately, with everything that's been going on. I'm staying upbeat... I have to, else I'd go crazy...

Well, here you are. I hope it helps you, cause it's been helping me.


O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.

- 'Abdu'l-Bahá
