Meditation before Accompanying a Friend Facing an ICE Deportation Hearing

Yedid Nefesh. Soul Mate!

You rescued Joseph from a pit of snakes;
You saved Daniel when he was almost devoured by lions;
You redeemed the Children of Israel from slavery and despair;

Be with me today and redeem [                           ] from the cold, brutal nightmare that envelopes him/her.  Deliver them that are drawn unto death; and those that are ready to be slain will you forbear to rescue?   (Proverbs 24:11)

Av Harachaman, Source of Compassion!
Keep me strong and resolute to do good;
Keep me sensitive to hear another’s silent cry; “Hannah was praying in her heart, silently. Her lips moved, but no sound was heard.” (I Sam. 1:10)
Keep me alert so that I will always hear your timeless charge: If there be among you a needy man, one of your brothers, within any of your gates, in thy land which the LORD your God gives you, you shalt not harden your heart. (Deut. 15:7)

We will sanctify Your name in the world, as it is sanctified above.
