Refresh and Gladden My Spirit – a Bahá’í Prayer

A Bahá’í Prayer

O God!  Refresh and gladden my spirit. 
Purify my heart. 
Illumine my powers.
I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. 
Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. 
I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. 
O God!  I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. 
I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.
O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself.
I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.
