FOR THE 4th
On this extended 4th of July weekend many of us will be traveling.
In this terroristic era and also the age of deteriorating infrastructures perhaps this prayer said by observant Jews before traveling will help. This is the English translation.
“May it be Your will, Lord, our God and the God of our ancestors, that You lead us toward peace, guide our footsteps toward peace, and make us reach our desired destination for life, gladness, and peace. May You rescue us from the hand of every foe, ambush along the way, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth. May You send blessing in our handiwork, and grant us grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us. May You hear the sound of our humble request because You are God Who hears prayer requests. Blessed are You, Lord, Who hears prayer”
"You don't have to be Jewish to pray."
