I found this prayer in an old Siddur. Perhaps few of my readers would have read from such a siddur; perhaps it is too modern, too cutting-edge, too controversial even (and prayer is no place for controversy). And yet, as I read the words on Shabbes afternoon, my neshomo was touched. Prayer bridges all denominations, and when we utter these words together, we are connected as one big family…
My God, My God,
I pray that these things never end,
The sand and the sea,
The crash of the waters,
Lightning of the Heavens,
Each human prayer.
אלי, אלי, שלא יגמר לעולם החול והים רשרוש של המים ברק השמים תפילת האדם
