Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

Powerful Men

Here’s another prayer in my series for men. It’s a brief call to action, summoning men to use their power in service of humanity.

To listen along, click on the triangle in the bar below (website only). The text follows.

Powerful Men
Men of honor,
Men of strength,
The world yearns for you.
Your wisdom, your courage, your vitality.
The call has come.

Men of conscience,
Men of understanding,
Summon the energy that is deep in your belly,
Steeped into your bones,
That heats your blood and fires your eyes,
And hold it as rod and staff,
Guide and compass,
To build, to heal,
To honor, to bless.

G-d of Majesty,
Teach me to use this power
In service to others
In the name of holiness and love,
So that I become a source of compassion and grace,
A light of awe and wonder.
