Praying for Healing in a Community

By Louis E. Newman

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Spring 2006

The author suggests that the power of prayer is in its ability to give voice to humanity. He asserts that prayers speak to people when the prayers address basic aspects of shared by all of humankind and specifically when they call attention to vulnerability. He argues that a prayer enters the heart when the words express something recognizable as deeply true about the human experience.
