Bahá’u’lláh

Long Medicinal Prayer

The Long Healing Prayer was written during the Akka period and it calls upon over 100 attributes of God to help us in our time of need. We can find that we draw into a much closer communion with Him, the Healer, and our Protector.  This hypnotic and gentle version takes a quiet pause after each verse to guide you in reflection of each unique attribute to let your soul speak directly to Him about your circumstance. This direct reflection on your life makes the Long Curing Prayer become real to you.  Your new spiritual journey is unfolding as you listen, meditate, reflect, and apply the attributes of God through your daily walk drawing closer to Him. 

You should not neglect your health, but consider it the means which enables you to serve. It — the body — is like a horse which carries the personality and spirit, and as such should be well cared for so it can do its work! You should certainly safeguard your nerves, and force yourself to take time, and not only for prayer and meditation, but for real rest and relaxation….

(In a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, 23 November 1947 to an individual believer)

REstful, Peaceful and relaxing melody

Listening to the gentle strums of the guitar and soft voice sets the tone to peace and tranquility.

ITS FOOD AND A LADDER FOR THE SOUL

God commands us to partake of the good things "Should a man wish to adorn himself with the ornaments of the earth, to wear its apparels, or partake of the benefits it can bestow, no harm can befall him, if he alloweth nothing whatever to intervene between him and God" -Gleanings From the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh

EASY TO SING ALONG TO

Several renditions of this prayer have been established. When this musical composition was released, it spiritually compelled Belitivity to bring it to tour which led to 350 cities, 19 months, and thousands of participants to joyfully participate in the long healing prayer music devotional experience.

CAN BE USED DAILY

Whether you need a daily morning prayer, prayer throughout your day, and even a bedtime prayer, the gentle rhythmic invocation can create an spiritual atmosphere for any time of the day.

“These daily obligatory prayers, together with a few other specific ones, such as the Healing Prayer, the Tablet of Aḥmad, have been invested by Bahá’u’lláh with a special potency and significance, and should therefore be accepted as such and be recited by the believers with unquestioning faith and confidence, that through them they may enter into a much closer communion with God, and identify themselves more fully with His laws and precepts.”

From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi

LONG CURATIVE PRAYER

We are living in uncertain times.  There is so much economic turmoil and personal circumstances that has challenged us spiritually and continues to do so.  The Long Curative Prayer helps ground you while you call upon the names of God to help you through every one of your challenges.  If you are feeling sad, discouraged, depressed, overwhelmed, hurt, sick, suffering, in financial despair, or any other ailment that impacts your daily life, find rest and peace in God.  Each unique attribute allows deep spiritual reflection.  He is your Helper, and is there to guide you no matter what you are going through.

LONG HEALING INVOCATION

"All true healing comes from God! There are two causes for sickness, one is material, the other spiritual. If the sickness is of the body, a material remedy is needed, if of the soul, a spiritual remedy. If the heavenly benediction be upon us while we are being healed then only can we be made whole, for medicine is but the outward and visible means through which we obtain the heavenly healing. Unless the spirit be healed, the cure of the body is worth nothing. All is in the hands of God, and without Him there can be no health in us! There have been many men who have died at last of the very disease of which they have made a special study. Aristotle, for instance, who made a special study of the digestion, died of a gastronomic malady. Aviseu was a specialist of the heart, but he died of heart disease. God is the great compassionate Physician who alone has the power to give true healing.
