Arlington Prayer Meeting “Compassion”

Great are Thy compassions, O LORD; quicken me as Thou art wont.
(Judaism / Christianity, Kesuvim (Writings), Tehillim (Psalms), 119,156)

But God is the best guardian, and of those who shew compassion He is the most compassionate.
(Islam, The Qur’an, Sura  12 – Joseph, Peace be on Him)

There is no one, O my Lord, who can deal bountifully with me to whom I can turn my face, and none who can have compassion on me that I may crave his mercy.
(Baha’i Faith, Baha’u’llah, Prayers and Meditations by Baha’u’llah, p. 29)

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, April 12th, I invite you and your loves ones to the interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington on the theme of “Compassion“. We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light dinner 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 sweets.

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.
