Prayer for Saturday (Purim begins)

The Jewish holiday of Purim begins at sundown today. The Orthodox Christian Triodion begins at Vespers this evening.

We are here to change the world with small acts of thoughtfulness done daily
rather than with one great breakthrough.
~ Rabbi Harold Kushner

Shoshanat Yaakov (The Rose of Jacob)

 Shoshanat Yaakov

The rose of Jacob thrilled with joy and exulted when they beheld Mordechai garbed in royal blue.

You have always been their salvation, their hope in every generation, to make known that all who place hope in You shall not be put to shame, nor shall all those who trust in You be disgraced forever.

Cursed be Haman who sought to destroy me; blessed be Mordechai the Jew. Cursed be Zeresh the wife of Haman who terrified me; blessed be Esther who interceded on my behalf. Cursed be all the wicked; blessed be all the righteous; and may Charvonah also be remembered favorably.

(traditional Purim song)
