Prayers for Religious Freedom

Deeply concerned about the plight of their Bahá’í brothers and sisters in Iran, the Arlington Bahá’í Community invites you to gather for a planned series of prayer meetings and conference calls.

We invite friends of all faith backgrounds to come together and pray with us. We will pray for protection and healing, for understanding and love, for compassion and justice. On Valentine’s Day, when so many are talking about love, let us call to mind the words of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of Bahá’u’lláh:

“I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.”

Please contact us for more information.
