Bahá’u’lláh instructs that believers must detach themselves and recite this prayer nine times:
He is, in truth, the Omnipotent, the Unconstrained! O Lord of Names and Fashioner of the Heavens! Free Thy lovers from the prison of the enemy. Verily, Thou art the Sovereign Ordainer of Thine irrevocable decree. He who alone shineth resplendent on the horizon of creation. O Everlasting Root! By the life of the All-Glorious, deprive them not of hope, nay rather aid and assist them. Verily, Thou rulest as Thou pleasest and within Thy grasp lie the kingdoms of creation. The fangs of Thine enemies have been whetted, ready to
bite into the flesh of Thy lovers. Protect these companions, O Thou Who rulest over all humankind and art the Judge on the Day of Judgement.

Yes indeed, this is the real thing. People are suffering all over the world, for things they do themselves, and for things others do. People do things, as if their decisions didn't cause real blood to be shed, real lives to be destroyed. It looks as if people have lost the understanding that their own actions, their own words, make things happen.

Yes, indeed, sometimes it looks as though the ordeals that our friends in Iran and elsewhere go through are the very life blood of humanity - as though the rest is just a fleeting, mad image on a screen.
