A Hanukkah Prayer
By Tad Campbell
The flicker of these lights echo the flame of our souls.
Searching. Hoping. Longing to find their place in the world as children of the Most High.
A G-d who promises us redemption through miracle and prayer, seeking and knowing.
He is our guidance who dispels the darkness and opens caverns of hope and salvation to our minds, eyes and hearts.
On this Festival of Lights, this miracle of days, we rekindle the Hanukkah flame in search not only of what has already come, but for the steps we have yet to journey.
And we do so as did our ancestors: in truth.
Praise be to our G-d the Heavenly One who spins the world into adventure, and us into its illuminated song.
