Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

Meditation for Today

This is a simple daily prayer for a kindness, gentleness and peace from This Grateful Heart: Psalms and Prayers for a New Day. It is applicable in times of joy and times of duress.

Meditation for Today
Help me through this day.
Guide me toward kindness, gentleness and peace.
Grant me strength and endurance,
Courage and humor,
So that I may do Your will with a full heart,
In joy and in love.
Grant me wholeness, wonder and awe.
Then, G-d of Old,
I will become a source of blessings,
A light of Your word.

    I am very happy that I was able to introduce your poems to one of my friends who is a Christian Faith Community Nurse. As I said in an earlier message to you, much of your work can be appreciated by other faith traditions because it speaks to the spiritual, not just the religious.
    Shabbat Shalom
