Ribono shel olam, Master of the Universe!
Harachaman, the compassionate One!
As you blessed our ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca,
Rachel and Leah, please bless and heal those affected by Hurricane Katrina.
El Na, Please, God, bring physical healing to those who are sick or injured; bring
material support to those who have lost their homes and their jobs; bring comfort
to the neshamot, the souls, of all whose lives have been disrupted by this
Please God, support the hands of all those who are working to save lives and
rebuild in the effected lands.
Help us to remember that the poorest have been made poorer, and we are
commanded not to turn our eyes from our poor brother.
Bring them speedily from darkness to light.
