A profound, perceptive and inspiring book on a subject of interest to every Bahá’í.
To Bahá’ís, prayer is indispensable: ‘the core of religious faith,’ writes Shoghi Effendi, Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith, ‘is that mystic feeling which unites man with God. This state of spiritual communion can be brought about and maintained by means of meditation and prayer.’
William Hellaby’s exposition of the Bahá’í teachings on the subject is based firmly on the Bahá’í Writings. His theme is prayer as man’s link with God: why we need to pray; the relationship of the soul of man to the Word of God and through it to the Covenant; the power of prayer; the qualities required for prayer; prayer and action; prayer in the community and as an integral part of the World Order of Bahá’u’lláh.
