Message of Appreciation from The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

[The following is a transcript of special message of gratitude from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to all of the well-wishers for his recovery, the audio of which is accessible by visiting The message was recorded a days prior to the Nation of Islam's Saviours' Day Convention in Detroit.]

“Greetings to you, I am Minister Louis Farrakhan. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who sent me flowers, cards and well wishes for my speedy recovery from my horrific operation. And to those of you who prayed for my recovery, words are not adequate to express my deep, deep sense of personal gratitude.

“Each of you can go back to your mosques, your churches, your cathedrals, your synagogues, your temples, your cloisters—wherever it is that you worship God—and say to your congregation, that our God, by whatever name you call Him, answers prayer.

“Many, many Christians of many different denominations prayed for me. Many pastors put their churches on fasts and prayers for my recovery. There were Hebrew Israelites all over America, Africa and in Israel that prayed for me.

“There were Rabbis and Jewish people that prayed for me to recover. There were Muslims all over the world who prayed for me. There were Buddhists who chanted, and there were those who would do yoga in their chants and in their meditations that prayed for me. There were Hindus who prayed for me. There were Blacks, Whites, Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans who prayed for me.

“How then, could I come through this illness and this horrific operation and not thank God for a message that would be universal in its scope, and universal in its power, to heal the human condition?

“And so, my beloved Brothers and Sisters, I am looking forward to seeing you in Detroit at the Ford Field on February 25th, where my subject will be, ‘One Nation Under God.’ “Be there if you can.”
