Dear God,
As I prepare to eat on Yom Kippur,
please help me find meaning.
As I nourish my body, heart, mind, and soul,
may comfort envelop me.
May I find teshuvah
by returning to my inner light.
By returning to my true self.
May I find a community
who will hold me where I am.
For who I am.
May the words of my heart
reach Your loving and compassionate presence.
May I find peace and holiness
through eating,
through connecting,
through You.
