    devotional prayer suggestions !

    Currently at my first year of ISGP. I would like to share a prayer at the start of our sessions but I'm very new to the faith and would like to know which ones are appropriate to share. Could you recommend some relatively short prayers I could say that aren't too difficult either.

    Question on Obligatory Prayers

    I just wanted to confirm my understanding that Baha'i are only required to choose one set of obligatory prayers: Either the long one said once at any point in each day, the middle one repeated three times each day, or the short one said sometime between noon and two hours before sunset each day.

    Are we no longer obliged to say obligatory prayers?

    Here is a talk of Mr. Hooper Dunbar F5ulZ5hHi_k (starts at 15:10) I am not sure that I understood one part of his speech correctly. I’ve heard him saying that Baha’u’llah said that we are no longer obliged to say obligatory prayers. Is it true?

    Answers to our Prayers Discussion
