This prayer was revealed by Bahá'u'lláh for Samandar to be repeated 19 times for making decisions. Bahá’u’lláh wrote: "Samandar, upon him rest My glory, hath ever been the recipient of divine favours, and there hath befallen him in the path of God that which His knowledge alone can encompass. In regard to his affairs, let him repeat nineteen times:
'Thou seest me, O my God, detached from all save Thee and cleaving unto
Thee. Guide me, then, in all mine affairs unto that which profiteth me for
the glory of Thy Cause and the loftiness of the station of thy loved ones.'
Let him then reflect upon the matter and undertake whatever cometh to mind. This vehement opposition of the enemies will indeed give way to supreme prosperity."
This track is quite special as the principal cellist and principal violist from the China National Symphony Orchestra recorded on this piece.

Thou seest me, O my God, detached from all save Thee and cleaving unto Thee. Guide me, then, in all mine affairs unto that which profiteth me for the glory of Thy Cause and the loftiness of the station of thy loved ones.
