Date of Prayer: 03/11/2022

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Creator of all, at this time when Jews around the world are preparing for Purim––for a time of confronting hate and persecution with courage, pride, and a sense of humor––help us find that laughter and that love for ourselves and one another, even when the world seems to be crashing down around us.
When the world is upside down, teach us how to cartwheel, audaciously adapting and returning rooted, always back to who we truly are.
May our bold open–heartedness bring forth a world of peace, of righteousness, and of jubilation for our families, for our communities, for our Nation, and for all who dwell on Earth.

We know that every soul deserves peace. We know that every soul deserves celebration. May we be Your vessels to bring that time about quickly and in our day.
And let us say:  Amen.
