Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Prayer at dinner table

Mahmud's Diary
October 15, 1912
Pleasanton, CA

His[‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s] prayer at the dinner table was this:

He is God! How can we render Thee thanks, O Lord? Thy bounties are endless and our gratitude cannot equal them. How can the finite utter praise of the Infinite? Unable are we to voice our thanks for Thy favors and in utter powerlessness we turn wholly to Thy Kingdom beseeching the increase of Thy bestowals and bounties. Thou are the Giver, the Bestower, the Almighty.
