Prayer for Friday

Rosh Hoshanah, the Jewish New Year celebration, continues today.

The circumstances of your life
have uniquely qualified you to make a contribution.
And if you don’t make that contribution,
nobody else can make it.
~ Rabbi Harold Kushner

Hashkiveinu

Hashkiveinu in Hebrew
Grant that we may lie down in peace, Eternal God, and awaken us to life. Shelter us with Your tent of peace and guide us with Your good counsel. Shield us from hatred, plague and destruction. Keep us from warm famine and anguish. Help us to deny our inclination to evil. God of peace, may we always feel protected because You are our Guardian and Helper. Give us refuge in the shadow of Your wings. Guard our going forth and our coming in and bless us with life and peace. Blessed are You, Eternal God, whose shelter of peace is spread over us, over all Your people Israel, and over Jerusalem.
