A Healing Prayer for Now

We pray, Mi Shebeirach, to the Source of blessing

Repair the rent garments of our souls

Stitch the ripped fabrics of our society

Bandage the holes in our hearts

Vaccinate us against systemic racism, abuse of power, and senseless hatred

Cure our sicknesses, treat our ailments, lighten the burden of our treatments

Give us strength, offer us relief, release us from suffering

Heal my dad, guard my mom

soothe my sister, love my brother

support my loved one, revive my friend

Nurture all who live in the in-between, notice all who are unseen

Renew our courage, restore our breaches, rescue our wholeness

and root us all in the ever sturdy Tree of Life…

Mi Shebeirach Nishmoteinu -

May the one who blesses all of our souls

bring us healing,

and bless us with love and understanding, wholeness and peace.
