“O thou whose heart hath been filled with the love of…”

O thou whose heart hath been filled with the love of the Beauty of God!
I have read thy kind letter and voiced thy words which show the excess of thy love to God, the greatness of thine adherence to the Cause of God and the abundance of thine attraction to the Kingdom of God. From a man like unto thee such words are always expected and it is your duty thus to proclaim.
I do greet thee from this Exalted Place, while thou art in that far distant country, and present to thee salutations and praise, and I see thee with the eye of the heart as though thou were present here and I speak to thee by the tongue of the Spirit, saying: “Blessed thou art with every blessing! Then preach to the beloved of God in that country the glad-tidings of El-Baha!”
The form of prayer requested by thee:
My God! my God! thou art my hope and my beloved, my intended aim and desire! With great humbleness and entire devotion I pray to Thee to make me the minaret of Thy love in Thy region, the lamp of Thy knowledge among Thy creatures and the banner of thy gift in Thy Kingdom.
Make me one of Thy worshippers who cut themselves from everything but Thee and sanctify themselves 330 from everything pertaining to the world and divert themselves from the defects of the suspicious.
Let my heart be dilated with joy through the spirit of confirmation from Thy Kingdom and illumine my sight with seeing the hosts of success following one another and descending upon me from thine Omnipotence.
Thou art the Almighty, the Invincible, the Powerful!
