Prayer Station Invitation “Patience”

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
(Christianity, King James Bible, Hebrews, 10:35-36)

O ye who believe! seek help with patience and with prayer, for God is with the patient.
(Islam, The Holy Qur’an, Sura   2 – The Cow)

It behoveth whosoever hath set his face towards the Most Sublime Horizon to cleave tenaciously unto the cord of patience, and to put his reliance in God, the Help in Peril, the Unconstrained.
(Baha’i Faith, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 211)

Dear friends!

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, November 16th, I invite you and your loves ones to an interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington which will be dedicated to the topic of Patience as reflected in different religious traditions. We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 8:00 pm, of selected Holy Writings and Prayers. I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayer. We’ll also uplift and refresh our souls with music, and 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.
