Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

Prayer after the Tornadoes

cherokee_tornadoA prayer for tornado victims, with Nashville as the new focus.

After the Tornadoes
G-d beyond my understanding,
The sky has turned violent,
Crushing homes and lives,
Upending dreams,
Toppling the foundations of hope and sustenance.
Crisis and chaos,
Confusion and loss,
A scene of sweeping destruction.

G-d of justice and mercy,
We pray for the people of ___________ [Nashville][other location],
And the victims of any disaster,
Any violence, suffering or despair.
Grant them shelter and solace,
Comfort and consolation,
Blessing and renewal.
May people of righteousness and mercy
Come swiftly to their aid.
Grant them endurance to survive,
Strength to rebuild,
Faith to mourn,
Courage to heal,
And devotion to each other.

G-d of heaven and earth,
Heavenly Guide,
Hand of love and shelter,
Grant the people of ___________ [Nashville][other location],
Your protection,
Your radiance,
And Your peace.
