Curing heart disease: God and prayers

Judaism uses two primary names to refer to God. The first, usually translated as “Lord,” is the Divine Presence that Moses encountered in the desert in a burning bush that was not consumed. Many Christians recognize this name as Jehovah, but to Jews it is the ineffable tetragrammaton, the name that cannot be expressed or described. It is most significant that when these four Hebrew letters are rearranged, they can spell out the words, “was”, “is,” or “will be.” God, then, is past, present, and future. He transcends the limitations of time; and since time is defined by spatial movements (the rotation of the earth on its axis equals one day, the revolution of the earth about the sun equals one year) God also transcends the limitations of space. Do not misunderstand God as transcendent, and therefore beyond your reach, but rather that He is beyond limitations imposed by space and time. God is not limited to a specific moment or confined to a specific place. He was, is, and always will be everywhere, including within each and every one of you. By the very meaning of His Name, He is accessible!

The other primary name for God is the one used in Genesis. This name for God refers to the revealed aspect of God, manifesting in the physical and material world. He speaks and the inorganic elements of creation are formed — light (energy), waters, earth, the smaller inhabitants, then the larger ones. When He forms man, He makes him “in His own image” and gives life to him by breathing into him from His own essence. Thus, man has aspects of God that other forms of life do not. One of these is the power of speech, which you can use to connect back to God through prayer.

The above concepts of the presence and accessibility of God should not be viewed as alien to Christian thought. The Jewish understanding of God is acceptable and still relevant. Christianity accepts the Torah or Five Books of Moses (Pentateuch), incorporating it as the Old Testament.

Observant Jews say ritual prayers three times daily. During the weekday prayer, there is one section of 19 benedictions. One of these 19 benedictions states, “Heal us, O Lord, and we will be healed. Help us and we will be saved. Grant complete cure and healing to all our wounds, for You, Almighty King, are a faithful and merciful healer. Blessed are You Lord, who heals the sick of His people Israel.”65

Not only for oneself does a person beseech God, but also for the well being of others. In the Jewish faith the rabbi announces the prayer, often referring to it as a prayer for those who are “not yet well.” During the daily service, congregants mention the person’s Hebrew name and say, “May the Holy One, blessed be He, be filled with mercy for him (her), to restore him (her) to health, and to cure him (her), to strengthen him (her), and to invigorate him (her),” continues with a request for a complete recovery to all bodily parts and veins, and concludes with a plea for “a healing of spirit and a healing of body.” The prayer concludes with, “healing will come soon,” and the congregation responds in unison, “Amen.”

On the Sabbath, prayer is also said for the maintenance of good health. Shortly after the prayer for the ill, the congregation prays in unison for the continued good health of the members of the community. “May there come forth from Heaven redemption, grace, kindness, compassion, long life, ample sustenance, heavenly assistance, bodily health, good vision, healthy and viable children, children who will not cease from or neglect the words of Torah — to this entire holy congregation, adults as well as children, infants and women . . .

It’s important to practice love and forgiveness, even if just for the sake of good health. One of the ritual prayers states, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today, shall be upon your heart. You shall teach them thoroughly to your children, and you shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the door posts of your house and upon your gates.” Love and forgiveness affect your cardiovascular system by decreasing stress hormones and increasing happiness.

The prayer Jews recite before bedtime begins by offering forgiveness. “Master of the universe! I hereby forgive anyone who has angered or vexed me, or sinned against me, either physically or financially, against my honor or anything else that is mine, whether accidentally or intentionally, inadvertently or deliberately, by speech or by deed, in this incarnation or in any other — any Israelite; may no man be punished on my account.” Thus, observant Jews begin their day by affirming their love for God, and finish the day by reaffirming that love and forgiving any one whom may have wronged them. Affirmations that engender feelings of acceptance and good will help to maintain cardiovascular health. Research demonstrates that peaceful visual images create coherent heart rhythms.
