A Wedding Gift

The writings of the Baha’i Faith contain a vast number or revealed prayers. Of course, we can say prayers in our own words but the revealed prayers are so beautiful that they help us to focus our energies and refine our purposes. Some prayers were revealed for special occasions such as marriage.

I have been creating a lot of new art recently and rediscovering some of my oldest work. I created the typography for this prayer by hand using a long obsolete method of press-on lettering. You can download a high resolution copy of it for personal use or printing (see below). Please remember that this work is copyrighted and do not post it on a website without asking for permission first. You may post a link to it instead.

Download a printable copy of this prayer. If you upload it to an Internet photo printing site like Shutterfly and order a standard 11 by 14-inch print, this image will fill the entire page. The print itself will contain instructions on how and where to trim it for framing.

    Beautifully done. Have saved it, my daughter’s anniversary is coming in a few days, and your gift will keep on giving.

    Many, many thanks,

    Beautiful. I have a friend who plans to be married this year and will give it to her and keep a copy for myself.

    It is exquisite! Perhaps our LSA will want to give it as a gift to couples we marry? I cannot see why we wouldn’t want to. Thank you so very much.
