Will: Acre, Israel
It is only by the will of God that I am able to visit and pray at the Shrine of Baha’u’llah in Acre, Israel. The Shrine of Baha’u’llah, shown in the background, is the Qiblih (Point of Adoration) to which Baha’is around the world turn in prayer on a daily basis.
“Make me ready, in all circumstances, O my Lord, to serve Thee and to set myself towards the adored sanctuary of Thy Revelation and of Thy Beauty. If it be Thy pleasure, make me to grow as a tender herb in the meadows of Thy grace, that the gentle winds of Thy will may stir me up and bend me into conformity with Thy pleasure, in such wise that my movement and my stillness may be wholly directed by Thee.”
(Baha’u’llah, Prayers and Meditations by Baha’u’llah, p. 240)
