A Prayer for Healing, by Rabbi Brant Rosen (Tzedek Chicago)

Contribute a translation Source (English)

From the maqor ha’ḥayim – the Source of All Life –
we draw forth these blessings:

blessings of refuah – healing –
for all who are ill,

blessings of koaḥ – strength –
to move through all fear and pain,
dis-ease and uncertainty,

blessings of neḥamah – comfort –
from their families, friends and communities.

Ken yehi ratson – may this be your will.
 
V’khen yehi retsoneinu – and may this be our will:

may we support our healers
and all who care for the ill and infirm,

may we demand that our leaders and officials
honor the public trust entrusted to them
by prioritizing the health of our communities.

may we fight for the well-being
of those whom our system has left behind
and commit to building a society
that cares for all who dwell in our midst.

V’nomar – and let us say,
Amen.
