Morning:
“By the righteousness of God,” Bahá’u’lláh wishing to reveal the full potency of His invincible power asserts, “should a man, all alone , arise in the name of Baháand put on the armor of His love, him will the Almighty cause to be victorious, though the forces of earth and heaven be arrayed against him.”
(Quoted in The World Order of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 106)


Evening:
“O Lord! Assist those who have renounced all else but Thee, and grant them a mighty victory. Send down upon them, O Lord, the concourse of the angels in heaven and earth and all that is between, to aid Thy servants, to succour and strengthen them, to enable them to achieve success, to sustain them, to invest them with glory, to confer upon them honour and exaltation, to enrich them and to make them triumphant with a wondrous triumph.

“Thou art their Lord, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of all the worlds. Strengthen this Faith, O Lord, through the power of these servants and cause them to prevail over all the peoples of the world; for they, of a truth, are Thy servants who have detached themselves from 193 aught else but Thee, and Thou verily art the protector of true believers.”
(Selections From the Writings of the Bab, Pages 192-193: gr2)
