Prayer for Thursday (Rosh Hoshanah)

Today is the first full day of Rosh Hoshanah, the Jewish New Year.

Whatever God does is for the best.
~ Rabbi Akiba

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!

Out of my distress I called on the Lord;
the Lord answered me and set me free.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
The Lord is on my side as my helper;
I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.

Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter through them
and give thanks to the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord;
the righteous shall enter through it.
I thank you that you have answered me
and have become my salvation.
This is the Lord’s doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.

You are my God, and I will give thanks to you;
you are my God; I will extol you.
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!

(from Psalm 118)
