A Prayer for Direction



A Prayer for Direction
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Adonai, please teach me how I can heal both myself and those around me. 
Help me choose the path that I am to walk, and guide my footsteps so I will not stray. Show me where I am needed, for that is where I want to be.  Though I sometimes may desire to take the easiest route, help me to understand that boulders in the path can be part of my growth.

Though I may make mistakes, help me to accept criticism and correction, and turn me from temptation lest I stray from a holy path. 

Give me strength, Adonai.  Help me rediscover my health, happiness and life.   Protect me, Sustain me, and Help me feel both satisfied and full of healing power.

Amen.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
