To Bend Light, provides prayers in the Jewish tradition

To Bend Light, provides prayers in the Jewish tradition from Alden Solovy, a Jewish liturgical scholar:

Source of healing,
Cast the light of health and well-being
On those who’ve been exposed to coronavirus,
Those who have contracted the disease,
And those — God forbid — who contract the disease in the future.
Bless them, protect them and bring them speedily to full recovery.
Bless all who are ill
With healing of body,
Healing of soul
And healing of spirit.

.ברוך אתה ה’, מקור חיים
Baruch atah Adonai, m’kor chayim.
Blessed are You Adonai, Source of life.

“Traveler’s Prayer in a Time of Pandemic” incorporates the perils of modern life with the dangers listed in the classic formulation of t’filat haderech, the traveler’s prayer.
