This acrostic poem/prayer that spells out “Tree of Life” is, of course, a response to the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. I think it’s a stunning response…lovely, open-hearted, and I loved praying it in solidarity with the victims and the bereaved. Please share if you are so moved. Thanks to WordSPA lover Virginia Douglas for bringing it to my attention.

Prayer for the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh

Tree of Life,
Revive our souls,
Enrich our days,
Entreating Your blessings.
Oh, God of Peace,
Fill our hearts with comfort, a
Letting Your Torah shine,
In the fullness of our love.
Faith in You, our God,
Eternal Source of blessings.
Praying for healing
In the depths of despair,
Thanking God for the survivors,
Thanking God for the first responders,
Sorrow crushing our hearts,
Bereaved beyond belief,
United in our love,
Returning to You in faith,
God of Israel,
Healer of generations.
Tree of Life,
Redeemer of Israel,
Enliven this moment with healing,
Enliven this moment with hope.
Oh, Rock of Israel,
Forget not the Jews of Pittsburgh.
Let Your love flow
In the days ahead
For justice and peace
​Everlasting.
