“O thou who hast turned thy face toward the Kingdom…”

O thou who hast turned thy face toward the Kingdom of God!
I supplicate God that thou mayest become like unto Peter, the “Rock”—unshaken, immovable and strong; be assisted by heavenly confirmation; be helped to the service of the Cause of God, opening thy tongue to teach the divine instructions, and living and walking according to the laws of the Book of Akdas 1 .
Thou hast asked permission to come to our presence: These days are very difficult. God willing, it will be brought about in the future. I pray to God that thou 364 mayest enter into such a state that presence and absence may become equal in thine understanding.
