Only $1 each in quantities, this is the Bahai prayer book that was given to visitors at the Bahá’í House of Worship in Wilmette for several years. It has a beautiful cover, a great introduction, a full table of contents, and over 100 prayers and quotations.
With over 250,000 copies in print, they have been used as mailers, put in hotel rooms, left as tips, given to local bookstores, promoted in ads, and given to thousands of personal contacts in times of need.
One of the most important books you can give, A Gift of Prayers, is one of the most affordable. It uses the inspiration of the Creative Word along with the power of Prayer to move a heart in ways no ordinary book can. When a seeker studies the many prayers and quotations in this book, along with the writings included in our matching edition of the Hidden Words, they will be drawn into a personal relationship with Bahá’u’lláh that will strengthen their Faith and prepare them for entrance into the Community.
They are the same size as our 4 x 6″ edition of The Hidden Words, with a matching full color cover, and blue ink inside, They are designed specifically for non-Baha’is, but will be appreciated by Bahá’ís as well. They have an introduction, a complete index of first lines (plus cross index) in categories seekers will understand. Click the “Table of Contents” tab to see the categories and first lines of every prayer included. In addition, there are appropriate quotations placed throughout the 64 pages. There are over 100 different prayers and short quotations included in this pocket edition. Similar books usually have 20-30 selections on 24-32 smaller pages.
Use them as NAW RUZ, Ayyám-i-Há or other occasion Gift-Cards !
Write a little note that says something like this: “The upcoming Bahá’í Holidays are a time of prayer, meditation and gift-giving. Here is a little something to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.” You can write it in the cover or, if you have lots of friends, run off 100 copies and slide it in an envelope along with this beautiful book of prayers. Everyone will be impressed by your thoughtfulness and generosity.
A Gift of Prayers is both dignified and affordable – an essential combination for effective teaching. If you need something even nicer, consider our Deluxe Edition (BKT-GDP). It has the same prayers, but is printed on cream paper and has a foil-stamped cover and square binding for more of a “book” feel. We also have a deluxe Large Print Edition that is also printed on cream-colored paper with 16-point type for easy reading.
NOTE: When you choose the case price, they will be shipped Media Mail unless you choose Priority Shipping. Media Mail takes 6-10 days, or 30 days to HI & AK. I can fit about 180 mini-books in a large flat-rate box for low-cost international or domestic shipping.
