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.

Father: O Lord our counselor, do not let us waste our labors and Your words on closed ears. Give us discernment to tell the scoffer from the wise man and those inclined to death from those inclined to life, for the fool bears his own death.

Family: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, O God, and knowledge of You brings understanding.

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.
