What follows is my provisional translation (in other words, not official or authorized; see here for more) of a prayer from ʻAbduʼl-Bahá, the original text of which is published in Majmú‘iy-i-Munáját-há: Ḥaḍrat-i-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, pp. 55–56 (selection no. 55). According to Star of the West, vol. 18, no. 11, p. 343, it comes from a Tablet that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá wrote “for friends in England during the first year of the Great War [World War I],” and “is dated ‘Akká, Syria, October 4, 1914.”
He is God
O kind Lord! Answer Thou the cries of the hapless. O pure Providence! Show Thou mercy unto these children motherless and fatherless. O Self-Sufficient God! Put Thou an end to this tempestuous flood. O Creator of the world’s inhabitants! Extinguish Thou this raging conflagration. O Great Helper! Come Thou to the aid of the orphans. O Supreme Judge! Console Thou the bitterly grieving mothers. O Compassionate and All-Merciful Lord! Have Thou pity upon the crying eyes and the burning hearts of the fathers. Still Thou this storm, and change Thou this world-consuming war into peace and reconciliation. Thou art the All-Seeing, the All-Hearing.
