Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

In Plain Sight

NRCSIA99625.tifG-d’s gifts are everywhere. Is that why they’re so hard to find? This prayer comes from a heart of humility, a heart of love, a heart of yearning. To listen, click on the triangle in the bar below. The text follows.

In Plain Sight
Ancient One,
G-d of Old,
Teacher, Guide and Shelter,
Your gifts are hidden in plain sight.
Why do I struggle to see
Love and light,
Hope and tomorrow,
The moment that just was
And the moment that will be?
My warm breath
And my grieving heart.
The gifts of this life.

Source of All Being,
Grant me the vision to see the gifts around me,
The wisdom to share Your bounty and grace,
And the humility to praise Your Holy Name.
