Prayer for Guidance and Protection in Times of Fear

Blessed are You, Holy Guide, 
for cradling us in Your care 
with every breath. 
Every day in the morning blessings, 
we thank You 
for making our steps firm,
hamekhin mitzadei gaver.
In this time 
of turbulence, sickness and violence, 
we lean into Your guidance 
like wobbly-legged toddlers. 

Thank you for steering us 
especially when we are shaken 
by fear. 
Ruakh ha’Olamim, Your guidance helps us
distinguish between safety and danger
so we know when to risk 
and when to protect. 
Blessed are You, El Shaddai, our Compassionate Protector.
