A Prayer for Health

A Prayer for Health
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

God, may my work feel redemptive even when an ocean of need feels like it will pull me down.
May I feel the supported when I feel alone in my work.
O God, remind me when I fail that I can learn, and that my life is more than my work.
O God, remind me when I succeed that I can learn, and that deep success requires the efforts of many.
May I remember that going home is a crucial part of the dream.
God, help me to remember that I am one of the people I am called by You to serve.
May I feel undivided as I transition from sphere to sphere, a whole person within Your world.

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.
