O Thou kind Lord!  Thou hast created all humanity from the same stock.  Thou hast decreed that all shall belong to the same household.  In Thy Holy Presence they are all Thy servants, and all mankind are sheltered beneath Thy Tabernacle; all have gathered together at Thy Table of Bounty; all are illumined through the light of Thy Providence. O God!  Thou art kind to all, Thou hast provided for all, dost shelter all, conferrest life upon all.  Thou hast endowed each and all with talents and faculties, and all are submerged in the Ocean of Thy Mercy. O Thou kind Lord!  Unite all.  Let the religions agree and make the nations one, so that they may see each other as one family and the whole earth as one home.  May they all live together in perfect harmony. O God!  Raise aloft the banner of the oneness of mankind. O God!  Establish the Most Great Peace. Cement Thou, O God, the hearts together. O Thou kind Father, God!  Gladden our hearts through the fragrance of Thy love.  Brighten our eyes through the Light of Thy Guidance.  Delight our ears with the melody of Thy Word, and shelter us all in the Stronghold of Thy Providence. Thou art the Mighty and Powerful, Thou art the Forgiving and Thou art the One Who overlooketh the shortcomings of all mankind.

1 Sara Di Diego = "There is another Bahai "O Thou Kind Lord!" prayer, except in honor of America:O Thou kind Lord!  This gathering is turning to Thee.  These hearts are radiant with Thy love.  These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings.  O God!  Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious.  Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world.  O God!  This American nation is worthy of Thy favors and is deserving of Thy mercy.  Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy bounty and bestowal. Work Cited:http://www.bahaiprayers.org/america.htm"
2 Sarah R = "Genesis 1:27 "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."Galatians 3:28 "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.""
3 Enakshi Ganguly = "What is a Tabernacle?"
4 Cary W = "To each of us gifts and graces are given, and no two the same calling or same purpose, but to give Him glory and great honor."
5 Sarah R = "Christians often will say that earth is not our home. Our home is with God in Heaven. Earth is just a stop along the way. The more "at home" we feel on earth, the more we will take our eyes off God.  "I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul" (I Peter 2:11)."Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things" (Colossians 3:2)."
6 Cary W = "Yeah, quicken our senses, heart and mind to behold Thy Greatness in all things now, for in You we move, live and have our very being."
