Opening Prayer

Father: Blessed are You, Lord our God and God of our fathers, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the great, mighty and awesome God, who bestows justice and kindness, who creates all things, who remembers the good works of the Patriarchs, and who brings a redeemer to Israel for the sake of His Name. We praise You, O Lord our God, who with Your Word makes the sun to set and to rise, and with Your Wisdom opens the gates of Heaven. The fear of You, O Lord, is the beginning of wisdom, and Your commandments bring understanding.

Family: Blessed are You, O Lord, Shield of Abraham. We look unto You, and we are saved.

Proverbs 17

Father: Creator God, give us only that which our understanding is able to manage. Keep us from overreach and wasteful pride that steals a harvest before it is planted. May we be wise stewards and never mock the poor.

Family: We will value wisdom, O Lord, more highly than wealth.

Father: Keep us from those who would return evil for good, O Lord. May we never justify the wicked or condemn the righteous. Guard our house from evil, so that our hearts will be joyful, our bodies strong and healthy.

Family: May we hear Your rebuke, O Lord, and not turn away.

Father: Give us a peaceful and honest tongue, O God, for upright speech is fitting for a prince, and even a fool is thought wise if he is silent. Keep us far from liars, gossipers, and those who expose every offense.

Family: Father of Mercy, may we speak only understanding and truth. Lead us into goodness.

Concluding Prayer

Father: Hear our voice, O Lord our God. May our meditations and the prayers of Your people be acceptable before You, for You are the Rock and Shield of our salvation. Our lives are in Your hands and our souls are trusting in You. You give purpose to our work, meaning to our struggle, and direction to our striving. Grant us our portion in Your Word and Your Messiah, and in Your infinite mercy, O Lord, forgive us for our transgressions and enable us to forgive those who have sinned against us. Heal us, and we will be healed. Help us, and we will be saved.

Family: We pray to You, Father, in the name of Yeshua HaMashiach. He who makes peace in his heavens, may he make peace for us and for all Israel. Amen.
