Prayer for Thursday (Sukkot)

The Jewish holiday of Sukkot continues today. The Navajo Sing in gratitude for the harvest begins today.

If God asks that you bend, bend and do not complain.
He is making you more flexible, and for this be thankful.
~ Terri Guillemets

Blessed are you, Lord, our God, sovereign of the universe
who has chosen us from among all people, and exalted us above every tongue
and sanctified us with His commandments, and you gave us, Lord our God, with love,
appointed festivals for gladness, festivals and times for joy
this day of the festival of Sukkot, the time of our gladness,
a holy convocation, a memorial of the exodus from Egypt
because You have chosen us and made us holy from all peoples
and your holy festivals in gladness and in joy you have given us for an inheritance.
Blessed are you, Lord, who sanctifies Israel and the seasons. Amen.

(traditional Sukkot prayer)
