    A Prayer for Alfie

    As a Scouser, a person born and brought up in the Great City of Liverpool I had to post this.



    I was asked by a child – is a long prayer better than a short prayer.

    I think Alfie deserves a long prayer……… I found this one on the WEB, probably the longest you could find.
    It is written in the 19th century by Baha 'u' llah who was imprisoned for most of his life with his small Son.

    He is the Healer, the Sufficer, the Helper, the All-Forgiving, the All-Merciful.
    I call on Thee O Exalted One, O Faithful One, O Glorious One! Thou the Sufficing, Thou the Healing, Thou the Abiding, O Thou Abiding One!

And again do I beseech Thee, by these most beauteous names, by these most noble and sublime attributes, and by Thy most Exalted Remembrance, and by Thy pure and spotless Beauty, and by Thy hidden Light in the most hidden pavilion, and by Thy Name, cloaked with the garment of affliction every morn and eve, to protect the bearer of this blessed Tablet, and whoso reciteth it, and whoso cometh upon it, and whoso passeth around the house wherein it is. Heal Thou, then, by it every sick, diseased and poor one, from every tribulation and distress, from every loathsome affliction and sorrow, and guide Thou by it whosoever desireth to enter upon the paths of Thy guidance, and the ways of Thy forgiveness and grace.
    Thou art verily the Powerful, the All-Sufficing, the Healing, the Protector, the Giving, the Compassionate, the All-Generous, the All-Merciful.

    28th April.

    Alfie died today.

    May he rest in peace as his soul moves on to another of God's worlds.

    Love to Alfie's Mother and Father in their hour of sadness.
