Short Obligatory Prayer
To be recited once in twenty-four hours, at noon.

   I bear witness, O my God, that Thou hast created me to know Thee and to worship Thee. I testify, at this moment, to my powerlessness and to Thy might, to my poverty and to Thy wealth.
   There is none other God but Thee, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.
