Oh Holy One, I do not know what is going to happen next.
Too much of life seems uncertain to me, and the future is unknown.
I am surrounded by foolish voices: are they foolish, or am I? I fear the worst, and I cannot even imagine what it is.
Help me to discern those things that I can control. Help me to release the rest.
Guide me to mitzvot that I can do. Show me how I can be helpful to others and increase the good in the world.
May I mirror those who do me a kindness, and may I be untroubled by those who wish to do me harm.
Sim shalom, oh Holy One, make peace among us, now and in the coming days.
