As Rav Kook teaches, “The soul is always praying,” and mine was/is, for Jack. I'm praying for many people all the time it seems, individual who I happen to know personally, who are struggling with physical illness, with sadness and grief, with financial woes. I'm praying for people around the world who I do not know, but who are struggling due to the same issues, or natural disasters, political upheaval, war, famine. There is much to pray for in this world of ours, the earth herself needs our healing prayers.
But this poem is dedicated to Jack, one little boy whose every breath gives joy and courage to all who are blessed and inspired by his presence in the world.
deep in his heart
