Prayer and Service

Prayer and Service

“…all effort and exertion put forth by man from the fullness of his heart is worship, if it is prompted by the highest motives and the will to do service to humanity.”

‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Just as the human body requires food for nourishment and good health, our spiritual being becomes strengthened through prayer, meditation and goodly deeds. It is an act of worship when we give thanks to God, offer a supplication asking for His assistance, or reflect upon our lives. It is also a prayerful deed when we demonstrate a generous attitude without seeking reward.

A place where God is praised becomes a place of inspiration for high ideals and commendable deeds:

“Blessed is the spot, and the house, and the place, and the city, and the heart, and the mountain, and the refuge, and the cave, and the valley, and the land, and the sea, and the island, and the meadow where mention of God hath been made, and His praise glorified.”

Bahá’u’lláh

The Bahá’í Houses of Worship across the world are contributions to the community where all people, whether they be children, youth, adults or the elderly, without distinction regarding nationality, ethnicity, or creed, are welcome to offer their prayers to God and to become inspired to discover their capacities and offer them in service to their communities.
