A Prayer For Gavin Welch

He is the Most Glorious!

O Lord my God!  Thou knowest that this servant is aflame with the fire of Thy love, dazed in the wilderness of longing for Thee, drawn onwards by the wondrous lights of Thy beauty, and making mention of Thee.  Make him soar with the wings of holiness to the kingdom of Thy verses, aid him with the confirmations of Thine invisible spirit, give him to drink of the cup of eternity from Thy sanctified hands, and let him attain the radiance of the rays shining forth from Thy beauty.  Verily, Thou art the Mighty and the Powerful.

Baha’u’llah, Ad`iyya Mubaraka, 60.  For my friend, Gavin Welch, who died yesterday.
