Idols and Suffering
In the beginning our forefathers served idols; but now the Omnipresent One has brought us close to His service.
Forgive us, O Holy One, for idolizing our bodies by being obsessed with our figures. Bring us close to Your service once again.
The Egyptians treated us badly and they made us suffer, and they put hard work upon us.
Others have made us hate our bodies and mistreat them.
And we cried out to the Lord, the God of our fathers, and the Lord heard our voice and saw our suffering, our labor, and our oppression.
The Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and outstretched arm, with great awe, miraculous signs and wonders.
