Today is the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur.
If you are not living in joy,
you are out of integrity with your soul.
~ Michael Beckwith
Al-mighty King, who sits upon the throne of mercy, You act graciously, pardoning the sins of your people and making them pass away one by one. You often grant pardon to sinners, forgiveness to transgressors, dealing generously with all mortals and not treating them according to their wickedness. O G-d, You who instructed us to recite Your thirteen divine qualities, remember, in our favor, the covenant of these thirteen qualities; as You revealed them to humble Moses, as it is written:
“The Lord came down in the cloud, and Moses placed himself there beside him and proclaimed: The Lord, The Lord is a merciful and gracious G-d, slow to anger and abounding in kindness and truth; He keeps mercy for thousands of generations, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, clearing those who repent.”
O pardon our iniquity and sin, and make us Your very own. Our Father, are truly kind, forgiving and merciful to all who call upon You.
(Part of the S’lichot, Prayers of Supplication,
said at Yom Kippur)
