Humility in service: This is Bahá'u'lláh's work, Bahá'u'lláh's Faith and we are "just servants" of the Blessed Beauty
These are the impressions of an onlooker to the announcement of the new membership of the Supreme Body of our Faith:
(Used with the author’s permission)
The same, one might say, goes for our work as teachers!
O Lord, my God!
Praise and thanksgiving be unto Thee for Thou hast guided me to the highway of the kingdom, suffered me to walk in this straight and far-stretching path, illumined my eye by beholding the splendors of Thy light, inclined my ear to the melodies of the birds of holiness from the kingdom of mysteries and attracted my heart with Thy love among the righteous.
O Lord! Confirm me with the Holy Spirit, so that I may call in Thy Name amongst the nations and give the glad tidings of the manifestation of Thy kingdom amongst mankind.
O Lord! I am weak, strengthen me with Thy power and potency. My tongue falters, suffer me to utter Thy commemoration and praise. I am lowly, honor me through admitting me into Thy kingdom. I am remote, cause me to approach the threshold of Thy mercifulness.
O Lord! Make me a brilliant lamp, a shining star and a blessed tree, adorned with fruit, its branches overshadowing all these regions.
Verily, Thou art the Mighty, the Powerful and Unconstrained.
