1153 Nafshi Cholat: A song of yearning

1153 SP

NAFSHI CHOLAT: “My soul yearns for your love, please, El, please heal her (my soul).”

This prayer, yearning for love, has it source in the Torah when Moses’ sister, Miriam, was temporarily afflicted with a kind of leprosy. It draws us to exploring the deep yearning of our own souls for the touch of love, not only for ourselves, but for those we know who may be suffering from an illness. This is a prayer often sung at a healing service, but it is also very powerful for ourselves when we have a time of yearning to be at one with the Source.
