“Prayer cannot bring water to a parched field, nor mend a broken bridge, nor rebuild a ruined city, but prayer can water an arid soul, mend a broken heart and rebuild a weakened will.”
There is a quiet power found in words of worship. When we seek to connect with the Divine, to find God’s presence in our lives, or to connect with our spiritual community, prayer is what provides us with a common language. Prayers are like a guide, helping us find our way through a maze of spiritual thoughts and heart-felt questions.
Sometimes, we pray together; sometimes, we meditate on our own. Regardless of when and where those moments of reflection come, they are an important part of Jewish life.
