Bahá’í Prayers for Healing

 


 

Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy.

Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion.

Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come.

Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

- Bahá'u'lláh

 


 

O God, my God! I beg of Thee by the ocean of Thy healing, and by the splendors of the Daystar of Thy grace,

and by Thy Name through which Thou didst subdue Thy servants,

and by the pervasive power of Thy most exalted Word and the potency of Thy most august Pen,

and by Thy mercy that hath preceded the creation of all who are in heaven and on earth,

to purge me with the waters of Thy bounty from every affliction and disorder, and from all weakness and feebleness.

Thou seest, O my Lord, Thy suppliant waiting at the door of Thy bounty,

and him who hath set his hopes on Thee clinging to the cord of Thy generosity.

Deny him not, I beseech Thee, the things he seeketh from the ocean of Thy grace and the Daystar of Thy loving-kindness.

Powerful art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee. There is none other God save Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.

- Bahá'u'lláh 

 


 

Glory be to Thee, O Lord my God!

I implore Thee by Thy Name, through which Thou didst lift up the ensigns of Thy guidance,

and didst shed the radiance of the loving-kindness, and didst reveal the sovereignty of Thy Lordship;

through which the lamp of Thy names hath appeared within the niche of Thine attributes,

and He Who is the Tabernacle of Thy unity and the Manifestation of detachment hath shone forth;

through which the ways of Thy guidance were made known,

and the paths of Thy good pleasure were marked out;

through which the foundations of error have been made to tremble,

and the signs of wickedness have been abolished; through which the fountains of wisdom have burst forth,

and the heavenly table hath been sent down;

through which Thou didst preserve Thy servants and didst vouchsafe Thy healing;

through which Thou didst show forth Thy tender mercies unto Thy servants

and revealedst Thy forgiveness amidst Thy creatures -

I implore Thee to keep safe him who hath held fast and returned unto Thee,

and clung to Thy mercy, and seized the hem of Thy loving providence.

Send down, then, upon him Thy healing, and make him whole, and endue him with a constancy vouchsafed by Thee, and a tranquillity bestowed by Thy highness.


Thou art, verily, the Healer, the Preserver, the Helper, the Almighty, the Powerful, the All-Glorious, the All-Knowing.

- Bahá'u'lláh

   


 

Praised be Thou, O Lord my God! I implore Thee, by Thy Most Great Name

through which Thou didst stir up Thy servants and build up Thy cities,

and by Thy most excellent titles, and Thy most august attributes,

to assist Thy people to turn in the direction of Thy manifold bounties,

and set their faces towards the Tabernacle of Thy wisdom.

Heal Thou the sicknesses that have assailed the souls on every side,

and have deterred them from directing their gaze towards the Paradise that lieth in the shelter of Thy shadowing Name,

which Thou didst ordain to be the King of all names unto all who are in heaven and all who are on earth.

Potent art Thou to do as pleaseth Thee.

In Thy hands is the empire of all names. There is none other God but Thee, the Mighty, the Wise.

I am but a poor creature, O my Lord; I have clung to the hem of Thy riches.

I am sore sick; I have held fast the cord of Thy healing.

Deliver me from the ills that have encircled me, and wash me thoroughly with the waters of Thy graciousness and mercy,

and attire me with the raiment of wholesomeness, through Thy forgiveness and bounty.

Fix, then, mine eyes upon Thee, and rid me of all attachment to aught else except Thyself.

Aid me to do what Thou desirest, and to fulfill what Thou pleasest.

Thou art truly the Lord of this life and of the next.

Thou art, in truth, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

- Bahá'u'lláh 

 


 

Glory be to Thee, O Lord my God!

I beg of Thee by Thy Name through which He Who is Thy Beauty hath been stablished upon the throne of Thy Cause,

and by Thy Name through which Thou changest all things, and gatherest together all things,

and callest to account all things, and rewardest all things, and preservest all things, and sustainest all things -

I beg of Thee to guard this handmaiden who hath fled for refuge to Thee,

and hath sought the shelter of Him in Whom Thou Thyself art manifest,

and hath put her whole trust and confidence in Thee.


She is sick, O my God, and hath entered beneath the shadow of the Tree of Thy healing;

afflicted, and hath fled to the City of Thy protection; diseased, and hath sought the Fountainhead of Thy favors;

sorely vexed, and hath hasted to attain the Wellspring of Thy tranquillity; burdened with sin,

and hath set her face toward the court of Thy forgiveness.

Attire her, by Thy sovereignty and Thy loving-kindness,

O my God and my Beloved, with the raiment of Thy balm and Thy healing,

and make her quaff of the cup of Thy mercy and Thy favors.

Protect her, moreover, from every affliction and ailment, from all pain and sickness,

and from whatsoever may be abhorrent unto Thee.

Thou, in truth, art immensely exalted above all else except Thyself.

Thou art, verily, the Healer, the All-Sufficing, the Preserver, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

- Bahá'u'lláh

and by Thy most Exalted Remembrance, and by Thy pure and spotless Beauty, and by Thy hidden Light in the most hidden pavilion,

and by Thy Name, cloaked with the garment of affliction every morn and eve, to protect the bearer of this blessed Tablet,

and whoso reciteth it, and whoso cometh upon it, and whoso passeth around the house wherein it is.

Heal Thou, then, by it every sick, diseased and poor one, from every tribulation and distress, from every loathsome affliction and sorrow,

and guide Thou by it whosoever desireth to enter upon the paths of Thy guidance, and the ways of Thy forgiveness and grace.

Thou art verily the Powerful, the All-Sufficing, the Healing, the Protector, the Giving, the Compassionate, the All-Generous, the All-Merciful.
