Myra’s school-time reminiscences

Myra Erbenova, a member of the Bahá’í Faith in West Berkshire, tells this touching story about a boy who was in a lesson about the Bahá’í Faith she recently gave during ‘Celebrating RE Month’ : “One boy wanted to say a prayer to be protected from a ‘big wave’ so he made up his own prayer, which was very sweet.

“This was followed by a Bahá’í children’s prayer for protection: O God, guide me, protect me. Make of me a shining lamp and a brilliant star. This prayer was said by me with help from some of the children that already know this prayer – the ones that attend Bahá’í children classes.”
