A Prayer of The Báb

In the Name of God, the Lord of overpowering majesty, the All-
Compelling. Hallowed be the Lord in Whose hand is the source of dominion. He createth whatsoever He willeth by His Word of command “Be,” and it is. His hath been the power of authority heretofore, and it shall remain His hereafter. He maketh victorious whomsoever He pleaseth, through the potency of His behest...
.. Immeasurably exalted art Thou, O Lord! Protect us from what lieth in front of us and behind us, above our heads, on our right, on our left, below our feet and every other side to which we are exposed.
 Verily, Thy protection over all things is unfailing.¹

 The Báb

 ¹ The original of this prayer for protection is written in the Báb's own hand, in the form of a pentacle.
