Invocation for Temple Beth-El Las Cruces Board Meeting on November 16, 2017 - based on the “Hashkiveinu” prayer

This was created for a writing session led by Stacey Zisook Robinson at Shabbat Shira at Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin on Friday, November 3.

It’s night time.
It has been a long day, Eternal One.
Sometimes we can find shelter and hope in the people around us.
Sometimes that may not be possible.
We may find some light, but, even in a familiar place, there may be too much darkness.
At those times, open our eyes and minds and hearts.
Help us.
Protect us.
Assure us that the darkness of the world will be flooded with light as morning comes,
So that we will have faith that any darkness in the human soul
will be touched and brightened by the light of your face and presence.
May Your loving spirit, Your peace, Your strength
be with us here, in Y’rushalayim, a city that needs peace,
and throughout the world.
