O God! Verily we have gathered here in the fragrance of Thy love. We have turned to Thy Kingdom. We seek naught save Thee and desire nothing save Thy good pleasure. O God! Let this food be Thy manna from heaven and grant this assemblage may become a concourse of Thy supreme ones. May they be the quickening cause of love to humanity and the source of illumination to the human race. May they be the instruments of Thy guidance upon earth. Verily, Thou art Powerful, Thou art the Bestower, Thou art the Forgiver, and Thou art the Almightly! - `Abdu'l-Baha

Prayer and communion feed the soul. We pray to God for aid and assistance during rough times, and express gratitude during good times. We pray for family, friends, neighborhoods, and city, and ask God to help us discover the purpose of our lives. We pray in the privacy of our own homes and come together in community for collective worship.

Bahá’í Devotional Gatherings are a time for people of all faiths and backgrounds to come together to pray in a dynamic and sacred atmosphere where we share the Sacred Writings that have guided humanity for thousands of years.

Often held in homes or neighborhood centers, prayer gatherings are free and open the public.


Words of Wisdom

“O MAN OF TWO VISIONS! Close one eye and open the other. Close one to the world and all that is therein, and open the other to the hallowed beauty of the Beloved.” -Baha'u'llah
