Daily Inspiration: Women Whispering


They are exempt from the time-bound practices of prayer. In this community, family life centers around prayer, yet the strict rules give a “hall pass” to women. It’s only men who are required to pray in the very structured way determined by their faith leaders.

We’re talking about the ultra-orthodox Jews living in the Holy land. Women take care of their large families by cooking, cleaning, and working outside of the home to bring home the (kosher) bacon. Their husbands spend days and nights praying and studying the bible. They receive a small government subsidy, but in order to get by, it’s the wife who gets an education and a job.

Politics are rough in the State of Israel. Fighting between Arabs and Jews is a problem that seems unsolvable. Yet there are some who think peace will come from an unlikely source: the ultra-orthodox Jewish women. There’s the slightest murmur of discontent among these women. As they gain economic power, they are finding their voice in politics, and they are speaking of compromise. Right now it’s a mere whisper. But it’s getting louder.


Prayer for Empowerment

Glorious God,
Thank you for the power I possess
to make change.
I will raise my voice in support of worthy causes,
I will act on behalf of the oppressed.
You have empowered me,
I am grateful.

Today's Spiritual Quote
The testimony of a good conscience will make the comforts of heaven descend upon a man's weary head like refreshing dew or shower upon a parched land. It will give him lively earnests and secret anticipations of approaching joy; it will bid his soul go out of the body undauntedly, and lift up his head with confidence before saints and angels. end quote
