Thoughts on Prayer

I am listening to CNN, and I am hearing a number of comments about the statements made by President Obama at the annual Prayer Breakfast. In light of the questions presented about that statement, I would like to post the Prayer for America that was written by Abdu'l-Baha:

"O thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to thee. These hearts are radiant with thy love. These minds and hearts are exhilirated by the message of thy glad tidings.O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees, even as it hasaspired to materialdegrees, and render this just government victorious. Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world. O God! This American nation is worthy of thy favors and is deserving of thy mercy. Make it precious and near to thee through thy bounty and bestowal.
