Questions and Answers
68Question: Concerning the sacred verse: “Recite ye the verses of God every morn and eventide.”
Answer: The intention is all that hath been sent down from the Heaven of Divine Utterance. The prime requisite is the eagerness and love of sanctified souls to read the Word of God. To read one verse, or even one word, in a spirit of joy and radiance, is preferable to the perusal of many Books.
