Sharing Our Message Day 4

Native American stamps

Bringing the Faith of Bahá’u’lláh to the indigenous peoples of the world was always one of the cherished wishes of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. He and Shoghi Effendi urged Bahá’ís pioneering to other lands to reach out to these people rather than to the residents of European descent. Their spiritual capacity is adding incalculable benefits to the Faith.

Cluster 19  14th Cycle Expansion Phase – Day 4

Friends, please join us in reciting this prayer today to support the teaching we are engaged in during our expansion phase:

O God, my God! Aid Thou Thy trusted servants to have loving and tender hearts. Help them to spread, amongst all the nations of the earth, the light of guidance that cometh from the Company on high. Verily, Thou art the Strong, the Powerful, the Mighty, the All-Subduing, the Ever-Giving. Verily, Thou art the Generous, the Gentle, the Tender, the Most Bountiful.

– ‘Abdu’l-Bahá  

 

And we share these quotes for your reflection today:

Turn thy face toward the Kingdom of God, ask for the bestowals of the Holy Spirit, speak, and the confirmations of the Spirit will come.    

-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, no. 153, p. 188)

 

Today, as never before, the magnet which attracts the blessings from on high, is teaching the Faith of God.  The Hosts of Heaven are poised between heaven and earth, just waiting, and patiently, for the Baha’i  to step forth, with pure devotion and consecration, to teach the Cause of God, so they may rush to his aid and assistance.  It is the Guardian’s prayer that the friends may treble their efforts, as the time is short  alas, the workers too few.  Let those who wish to achieve immortality, step forth and raise the Divine Call.  They will be astonished at the spiritual victories they will gain.

-From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, The Individual and Teaching – Raising the Divine Call, p. 31
