Prayer for the World

Posted on Nov 1, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Let the rain come and wash away the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds held and nurtured over generations.
Let the rain wash away the memory of the hurt, the neglect. Then let the sun come out and fill the sky with rainbows.
Let the warmth of the sun heal us wherever we are broken. Let it burn away the fog so that we can see each other clearly
So that we can see beyond the labels, beyond accents, gender, skin color.
Let the warmth and brightness of the sun melt our selfishness and our fear so that we can share the joys and feel the sorrows of our neighbors.
And let the light of the sun be so strong that we will see all peope as our neighbors.
Let the earth nourished by the rain, bring forth flowers to surround us with beauty and fragrance and let the mountains
teach us how to reach towards heaven.

Rabbi Harold Kushner
