O Holy One,
Help us to have courage in the midst of fear
Help us to find the strength You know is in us
Help us to walk with kindness
May we remember to offer a stranger tea
May we find fitting gratitude for the law enforcement team
For the FBI
Help us to turn our hearts – even more –
To our allies and friends.
Help us find one another – across difference and through darkness.
Help us – Ezrat SarahThe first matriarch, wife of Abraham, and mother of Isaac, whom she birthed at the age of 90. Sarah, in Rabbinic tradition, is considered holy, beautiful, and hospitable. Many prayers, particularly the Amidah (the central silent prayer), refer to God as Magen Avraham – protector of Abraham. Many Jews now add: pokehd or ezrat Sarah – guardian or helper of Sarah., Helper of Sarah – to uphold our human family even more today
Even as we have kept vigil
with hatred barring the door.
Like AbrahamAbraham is the first patriarch and the father of the Jewish people. He is the husband of Sarah and the father of Isaac and Ishmael. God's covenant - that we will be a great people and inherit the land of Israel - begins with Abraham and is marked by his circumcision, the first in Jewish history. His Hebrew name is Avraham., let us have the courage to keep the tent flap open
For all who seek shelter and refuge.
