A PRAYER FOR 5773

A PRAYER FOR 5773

May you relax about the Third Millennium of the Common Era, and realize that you still have 227 years until the dawn of the Sixth Millennium of the Jewish Calendar, by which time the computer will be long since obsolete and so will you.

May God give you the strength to go through a year of presidential campaigning, and may some of the promises made be kept.

May you believe at least half of what the candidates propose, and may those elected fulfill at least half of what they promise, and may the miracle of reducing taxes and balancing budgets actually happen.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them.

May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, and may your check book and your budget balance, and may they include generous amounts for charity.

May you remember to say “I love you” at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

May God grant you the Senility to forget the people you never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones you do like, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

And may the Messiah come this year, and if he does not, may we live as if he has, in a world at peace and with the awareness of God’s love in every sunset, every flower’s unfolding petals, every baby’s smile, every lover’s kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of your heart.
