    O God, my God! Lowly, suppliant and fallen upon my face, I beseech Thee with all the ardor of my invocation to pardon whosoever hath hurt me, forgive him that hath conspired against me and offended me, and wash away the misdeeds of them that have wrought injustice upon me. Vouchsafe unto them Thy goodly gifts, give them joy, relieve them from sorrow, grant them peace and prosperity, give them Thy bliss and pour upon them Thy bounty.
    Thou art the Powerful, the Gracious, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting!” -‘Abdu’l-Baha 

    O God, these assailants are ill advised. Guide them with the light of Thy knowledge and cheer their hearts.
