Rabbi Berland’s Prayer To Heal The Lungs
The following is translated from Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s compendium of prayers in the Refuah Shleimah booklet. To get the prayer in the original Hebrew, you can buy the booklet HERE.
Master of the world may I merit Shir HaShirim, the song which is above all songs, the song whose source is from the inner point, the foundation stone, the root of all the creation, the song which all the creations sing, the song of Jerusalem, the song of the time to come.
Please Gracious Merciful One, please heal my lung in the blink of an eye, which is represented by the lion on the heavenly chariot, which is three chassadim [the numerical value of ‘chessed’ x 3 = lung = 216].
And send down to me all the chassadim from the root of the upper chessed, “pouring from Levanon” from the white of the brain, the thirty two paths of wisdom, the fifty gates of understanding.
Please Gracious Merciful One, create for me a new lung and a new heart, like it’s written,
“Hashem created for me a pure heart and a true spirit he renewed in me”.
And may I merit through the lungs blowing on the heart a spirit of prophecy, a holy spirit, like it’s written in Yoel, “and it will be after this, that I will pour out My spirit on all flesh and your sons and daughters and their elders will prophesize, they will dream dreams, your youths will see visions, also the slaves and the maidservants, in those days I will pour out My spirit.”
Please Gracious and Merciful One who can do anything, the Victor of all victors, please act according to the greatness of Your mercy so I will not be less than an Egyptian maidservant who merited to see at the Sea more than the prophet Yehezkel.
Please Gracious and Merciful One, may I merit the level of the holy forefathers and the holy prophets and may I merit to see the holy Shechina, like it’s written in the Gemara, “that the Shechina rests about the head of a sick person”.
And may I merit every day the revelation of the Shechina and may I not be less than Abba Umna, who merited every day a bat kol (heavenly voice), “good day to you, Abba Umna”.
