Prayer for a Little Synagogue Stalwart

We are gathered here 
  to worship the one 
before whom there is no pretense
One of our congregants 
has been stricken 
Therefore we must 
  direct our hearts to him
Together we must ask 
    for healing
We must ask the 
   giver of our Torah for mercy 
  for our spiritual brother
Shabbat has come 
Peace enters into our lives 
  Compassion must be 
our guide this evening 
As we chant the Sh'ma 
Our focus should be on one 
   who cannot be present tonight 
Life is "the dream that flies away"
   according to the prayerbook
   Step up and chant fervently 
 For the ultimate power of healing 
   is not in mortal hands
Shabbat Shalom
