NIGHT PRAYER: Friday 9/18

We turn to my cyber friend, Alden Solovy,
for his 2020 Rosh Hashana prayer, written in this pandemic season
to celebrate this holy day, the beginning of a new year: 5781!
Wildly Unimaginable Blessings 
Let us dream
Wildly unimaginable blessings…
Blessings so unexpected,
Blessings so beyond our hopes for this world,
Blessings so unbelievable in this era,
That their very existence
Uplifts our vision of creation,
Our relationships with each other,
And our yearning for life itself.

Let us dream
Wildly unimaginable blessings…
A complete healing of mind, body, and spirit,
A complete healing for all,
The end of suffering and strife,
The end of plague and disease,
When kindness flows from the river of love,
When goodness flows from the river of grace,
Awakened in the spirit of all beings,
When God’s light,
Radiating holiness,
Is seen by everyone.

Let us pray —
With all our hearts —
For wildly unimaginable blessings,
So that God will hear the call
To open the gates of the Garden,
Seeing that we haven’t waited,
That we’ve already begun to repair the world,
In testimony to our faith in life,
Our faith in each other,
And our faith in the Holy One,
Blessed be God’s Name.

And here's a delightful song for Rosh Hashana:
you just need to know that apples and honey
are traditional treats for this holiday of new beginnings!
