A Painful Prayer for these 90 Seconds

A Painful Prayer for these 90 Seconds
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Dear God,

My heart can't hold all of this. I know I am a brother to all, but my brother and sister are under threat right now. This moment.

These 90 seconds are not about anyone else.

I am a good person who works towards a world of Peace, of Life, of universal dignity. But right now, I call to You as a Jew from a place of tightness, of pain, of fear. I call to You for protection for my family.

These 90 seconds are not about anything else.

Please God, please, shield my family under Your protective wings.

Amen.
