We Pray

PRAYER FOR SEPTEMBER 2016 NEWSLETTER

by Rabbi Birdie Becker

 

For the sake of the Architect of Creation and the divinity that exists in all that has been created:

We recognize and honor the work of generations past;

We ready our hearts, minds and hands to embrace the conflicts, divisions and obstacles this generation presents toward our work for reproductive justice;

And, we resolve to handle challenges with integrity so that future generations have enriched opportunities.

“I don’t speak because I have the power to speak,” said Rabbi Kook, “I speak because I don’t have the power to remain silent.”

Blessed is the Eternal God, Divine in all the universe, who gives us the opportunity to mend the world.
