O Thou kind Lord! These are Thy servants
who have gathered in this meeting, have
turned unto Thy kingdom and are in need of Thy
bestowal and blessing. O Thou God! Manifest
and make evident the signs of Thy oneness which
have been deposited in all the realities of life. Reveal
and unfold the virtues which Thou hast made
latent and concealed in these human realities.
O God! We are as plants, and Thy bounty is as
the rain; refresh and cause these plants to grow
through Thy bestowal. We are Thy servants; free
us from the fetters of material existence. We are
ignorant; make us wise. We are dead; make us
alive. We are material; endow us with spirit. We
are deprived; make us the intimates of Thy mysteries.
We are needy; enrich and bless us from Thy
boundless treasury. O God! Resuscitate us; give
us sight; give us hearing; familiarize us with the
mysteries of life, so that the secrets of Thy kingdom
may become revealed to us in this world of
existence and we may confess Thy oneness. Every
bestowal emanates from Thee; every benediction
Thou art mighty. Thou art powerful. Thou art
the Giver, and Thou art the Ever-Bounteous.
