Prayer and worship are central aspects of Bahá’í life, both as individuals and as a community. The Bahá’í Writings state that prayer, in its highest form, is an expression of love and gratitude for one’s Creator. Prayer can be likened to food for the soul and is a means of attracting divine assistance and blessings. Prayer is not limited to words, but is a state of being that, ultimately, finds expression in our deeds. Prayer may be defined as “expression of one’s feelings towards God” - Who is our creator and loving companion. Here are a few prayers from the Bahá’i Prayer Book:
