: Dear friends,

: I am doing a reasearch and in depth essay on obligatory Prayer in the faith, and would like to have personal accounts of how Baha'is have managed to adjust there lives to this requirement. i.e. Challenges of fitting in prayer, how these challenges have been met, Qiblih, ablutions, suitable place, etc. Very interested in how these challenges have had an impact in your life. I will mention only first name if I use the story in my paper, (or a fictitious one if you want to be anonymous). Will need advance approval to edit the story and print it.

: The story needs to exemplify all the requirements of a correctly offered obligatory prayer, as it will be used as an example of how to apply all the rules in real life situations.

: Please reply to me directly.

: Thanks in advance!

Dear Loren, I am writing on the idea of self-care within the Baha'i teachings.
Would you have any research, i.e. perhaps a personal story/quote which might be
illustrative of the benefits of the Obiligatory Prayers? If there's anything you
think might be useful, I'll be interested in knowing about it.
Warm Greetings,
Diana Hope Wenger
