Every Word That is Said Shall Be Received



My tzimmes is finishing in the oven and my thoughts are turning to the focus of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. I think of the year past and the year to come and my prayers turn to prayer and my prayers for my family, friends and the sadness of our world.

One of the high points of the year soon to be past was my congregation's prayer retreat in February. One of the three days was devoted to petionary prayer. I took away from that day the sureness that it is an obligation and a blessing to pray for others. As we begin the long days of services and reflection I will have a lot of time to pray, both the liturgy and prayers of my heart. It will be my blessing to bring your prayers with me as I begin this year's journey. No prayer is too small to be offered to G'd.

The title of this post is from the first service of holiday season last week and one I will strive to remember throughout this new year, 5776, in the Hebrew calendar.

I will be honored to pray for any of your intentions in the next ten days of prayer and will keep all of my blog friends in my prayers, as I do every day.

Thank you all for your friendship and prayers for a sweet new year!

Every word that is said shall be received. That is powerful, prayer is powerful. I meet regularly with two groups of ladies who share prayer requests and it is wonderful to know that we pray for each other, in between seeing each other.
