Weekly Thursday Noon Prayer Time – 2nd April 2020

This Thursday’s prayer is from Jeremy Jacobson from the Jewish Faith Community.  If you are able to reflect on this on Thursday at noon, others in the faith communities will be doing so as well.

Tefilat Haderech

May we be blessed as we go on our way
May we be guided in peace
May we be blessed with health and joy
May this our blessing, amen.
May we be sheltered by wings of peace
May we be kept in safety and in love
May grace and compassion find their
way to every heart
May this be our blessing, amen.
Amen, may this be our blessing, amen.
-Debbie Friedman

Jeremy writes:

“Why this prayer? Tefilat Haderech is actually a prayer for the traveller, but it occurs to me that we are all on a journey through this time and we will get through it by grace and compassion, not only divine, but human, amongst ourselves.”
