Prayer for Thursday (Lag B’Omer)

Today is the Jewish minor holiday of Lag B’Omer, commemorating a break in the plague during the lifetime of Rabbi Akiva.

Bread for myself is a material question.
Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one.
~ Nicholas Berdyaev

May the One Who blessed our ancestors be present to those who provide help for the ill and troubled among us. May they be filled with the fortitude and courage, endowed with sympathy and compassion, as they give strength to those at their side. May they fight against despair, and continue to find within themselves the will to reach out to those in need. And in their love of others, may they know the blessing of community, and the blessing of renewed faith.

(Jewish prayer for Caregivers)
