Prayer: Prayer is food for the soul, just as we nourish our physical bodies so should we nourish our souls and our soul receives its nourishment through prayer and meditation.

“There is nothing sweeter in the world of existence than prayer. Man must live in a state of prayer. The most blessed condition is the condition of prayer and supplication. Prayer is conversation with God. The greatest attainment or the sweetest state is none other than conversation with God. It creates spirituality, creates mindfulness and celestial feelings, begets new attractions of the Kingdom and engenders susceptibilities of the higher intelligence.”

— Bahá’í Writings

To live in a state of prayer entails not only uttering the verses of God but also turning our hearts and souls towards him throughout the day. Bahai’s have prayers that have been revealed by the central figures of the Bahá'í Faith – The Báb, Bahá’u’lláh and 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
