Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

Prayers of My Heart

This is a short and simple prayer about living with joy and tenderness, guided by G-d’s word. To listen, click on the triangle in the bar below (website only). The text follows.

Prayers of My Heart
G-d of millennia,
G-d of generations
And the great expanse,
I have but a moment,
A flicker of time to
Bless and be blessed.

These are the prayers of my heart:
Tenderness and Shabbat.
The spiritual practice of love.
To know and not to know.
To be strong in faith and open to adventure.
To laugh in the wind.
To smile in the sunshine.
To play in the rain.
To live in dignity.
To consecrate the hours.
To sanctify my days.
To live Your Torah.
To praise Your name.
Shabbat and tenderness.
The spiritual practice of love.

      Thank you. Please take a moment to look at the posted titled “Hospice Prayers.” I am considering some revisions to the prayer entitled “Upon Entering Hospice.” Your thoughts and comments are welcome. Alden
