"The daily prayers are to be said each one for himself, aloud or silent makes no difference. There is no congregational prayer except that for the dead. We read healing and other prayers in our meetings, but the daily prayer is a personal obligation, so some one else reading i+. is not quite the same thing as saying it for yourself. "If you find you need to visualize some one when you pray, think of ----... the Master. Through Him you can address Baha'u'llah. Gradually try to think of the qualities of the Manifestation, and in that way a mental form will fade out, for after all the body is not the thing, His Spirit is there and is the essential, everlasting element."

January 31, 1949, to Mrs. Stuart Sims.
