Weekly Thursday Noon Prayers – 8th July 2020

Cornwall Faith Forum sends love to everyone in Cornwall.

This week’s prayer is from Rabbi Harold Kushner and was kindly sent to us Paul. Very many thanks.

Here’s Rabbi Harold Kushner’s “Prayer for Peace” (2003)

Let the rain come and wash away the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds held and nurtured over generations.

Let the rain wash away the memory of hurt and the neglect.

Let the sun come out and fill the sky with rainbows.

Let the warmth of the sun heal us wherever we are broken.

Let it burn away the fog so we can see each other clearly.

So that we can see beyond labels, beyond accends, gender or skin color.

Let the warmth and brightness of the sun meld our selfishness.

So that we can share the joys and feel the sorrows of our neighbors.

And let the light of the sun be so strong that we will see all people as our neighbors.

Let the earth, nourished by the rain, bring forth flowers to surround us with beauty.

And let the mountains tech our hearts to reach upward to heaven.

Amen.
