Prayer of Fasting

Postby larry » Tue Mar 10, 2015 3:39 pm

In the compilation "The Importance of Obligatory Prayer and Fasting" ( ... ory_prayer) under the section 'Prayers by Baha'u'llah', number VI, does anyone know if this prayer is the full English translation of the 'Prayer of Fasting' mentioned in Gleanings on page 337 which appears to be an excerpt of a longer prayer. See: "Observe, for My Beauty's sake, the fast, O people, and set no limit to its duration," I swear by the majesty of Thy glory, that every one of them will faithfully observe it, will abstain from whatsoever will violate Thy law, and will continue to do so until they yield up their souls unto Thee"

If this is not the full English translation of the Prayer of Fasting mentioned in Gleanings, is a translation available?

Does anyone know what the original Persian or Arabic source is for this prayer (Prayer of Fasting)?

Thank you,
