Abstract Authorized translation of a short prayer, probably revealed for a Western believer.
Notes This prayer is believed to have been given to Edward "Saffa" Kinney by 'Abdu'l-Bahá. The Research Department of the Universal House of Justice states that the original of the prayer does not bear the name of the recipient, though it is likely it was revealed for a western believer because the Master signed it in the roman alphabet. The original was published in Persian in "Muntakhabat-i-Matatib", vol. 2, Page 16, number 24. The translation below is an authorized translation. This prayer can therefore be considered and used as authentic and authoritative.
