Ordain for me, O my Lord, and for those who
believe in Thee that which is deemed best
for us in Thine estimation, as set forth in the Mother
Book, for within the grasp of Thy hand Thou
holdest the determined measures of all things.
Thy goodly gifts are unceasingly showered
upon such as cherish Thy love, and the wondrous
tokens of Thy heavenly bounties are amply bestowed
on those who recognize Thy divine Unity.
We commit unto Thy care whatsoever Thou
hast destined for us, and implore Thee to grant us
all the good that Thy knowledge embraceth.
Protect me, O my Lord, from every evil that
Thine omniscience perceiveth, inasmuch as there
is no power nor strength but in Thee, no triumph
is forthcoming save from Thy presence, and it
is Thine alone to command. Whatever God hath
willed hath been, and that which He hath not
willed shall not be.
There is no power nor strength except in God,
the Most Exalted, the Most Mighty.
