As the title suggests, this book is a collection of various prayers and meditations that Bahá'u'lláh revealed to mankind. The reader can find almost any subject here and read what Bahá'u'lláh, Prophet Founder of the Bahá'i Faith, wrote about that subject.

The prayers themselves reveal much and contribute to ones understanding of the world we live in.

This book is recommended to the serious student of religion in general and the Bahá'i Faith in particular.
