Prayer Station Invitation: Divine Trumpet Blast
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns, a holy convocation.
(Jewish Torah (Law), Vayikra (Leviticus), 23:23-24)
Arise, and proclaim unto the entire creation the tidings that He Who is the All-Merciful hath directed His steps towards the Ridvan and entered it. Guide, then, the people unto the garden of delight which God hath made the Throne of His Paradise. We have chosen thee to be our most mighty Trumpet, whose blast is to signalize the resurrection of all mankind.
(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 31)
What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, food cooked with love, tea poured in peace, cake shared with smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for the week ahead.
This Monday, September 21st, I invite you and your loves ones to the regular interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington! I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayer.
We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 8:00 pm, of selected Holy Writings from diverse religions on the theme of Divine Trumpet Blast. We’ll also uplift and refresh our souls with music, and offer prayers as the spirit moves us. We’ll conclude with tea and cake.
We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers, please contact me.
