A Jewish Prayer

At a recent interfaith discussion, Rabbi Jacques sent us off with the following. This is a good reminder that we have much to learn from one another, and can be inspired by people of other faith.

Rav Ammi (Third Century, Tiberius),

May you live to see your world fulfilled.
May your destiny be for worlds still to come, and may you trust in generations past and yet to be. May your heart be filled with intuition and your words be filled with insight.
May songs of praise ever be upon your tongue and your vision be a straight path before you.
May your eyes shine with the light of holy words and your face reflect the brightness of the heavens.
May your cherished hopes be fulfilled in your lifetime; May you be worthy of life eternal;
And may your ideals persist throughout the generations;
May your heart be filled with understanding; May your mouth speak wisdom;
And may your tongue give expression to song;
May your eyes direct you straight forward; May they shine with the light of Torah; and may your countenance be as radiant as the bright firmament.
May your lips speak knowledge and righteousness; And may your feet swiftly take you
To places where the words of God are heard.
