Earth Etude for Elul 11 - Morning Prayer

by Judith Felsen, Ph.D.

I awaken to a world
uncertain of its future
…Your will…???
I perceive an earth
in conflict and divided
…Divine design…???
I envision a tomorrow
wondering and doubtful
...Heavenly plan…???
I imagine next year’s future
knowing it may not arrive
...Exalted humbling…???
I experience uncertainty
life’s newness in unknowns
...Celestial opening…???
I dissolve myself in guidance
fused in trust
...Divine order… ???
I enroll as one
in service building earth anew
...Majesty’s request…???
I become a vehicle of reconstruction
grateful in employment by mankind
...My truth… … …
