This is another meditation asking for G-d to help give us voice to the prayers hidden deep in of our flesh and our bones. It’s similar to “For Prayer,” but carries a deeper sense of yearning. So far, I’ve written 11 prayers about prayer, including one to be said “Before Writing a Prayer” and one for “After Writing a Prayer.” To listen along, click on the triangle in the bar below. The text follows.
There’s a prayer stuck in my throat,
Longing to be given voice,
Yearning to be heard.
There’s a prayer stuck in my limbs,
Longing to be given power,
Yearning to be seen.
There’s a prayer stuck in my lungs,
Longing to be given breath,
Yearning to be given life.
G-d of Old,
Release the prayer hidden deep in my bones,
The prayers that move through my veins and through my heart.
Let my body become a blessing of joy and service.
Let my being become an instrument of holiness and light.
Let my life praise creation with all of my deeds.
Use my voice,
And my breath.
Set free this chorus of sacred love,
This symphony of
Radiance and splendor.
