    Illustration by Negar Yazdani
    “He is God!
    O God, I am an innocent child. Safeguard me under the shelter of Thy protection and bestow upon me favor and mercy. Nurture me, and under the shadow of Thy divine blessings enable me to grow and develop so that I may become spiritual, illumined, and heavenly. Thou art the Mighty, the Powerful, and the Loving.”
    — ‘Abdu’l-Bahá (Provisional Translation by Shahin Mowzoon)
