Thank you, God, for the gifts that you have given us good health, family, and love.
Thank you for leading my love to me and for giving us the ability to perform your mitzvot. May the love that you created between us find its way into a unified soul within. Guide us in a path of righteousness, and light our way so that we are acceptable in your eyes. Give us the strength that we need to protect, support, and heal each other.
Bless me/us with a healthy baby who will grow in your likeness, under the warmth of your care. Help my/her body to quench the thirst of an unborn child as we will quench its soul with lessons of The Five Books of Moses, and the foundation of all of Jewish life and lore. The Torah is considered the heart and soul of the Jewish people, and study of the Torah is a high mitzvah. The Torah itself a scroll that is hand lettered on parchment, elaborately dressed and decorated, and stored in a decorative ark. It is chanted aloud on Mondays, Thursdays, and Shabbat, according to a yearly cycle. Sometimes "Torah" is used as a colloquial term for Jewish learning and narrative in general. and goodness.
Help me/us to fulfill the prophecy as promised to Abraham is the first patriarch and the father of the Jewish people. He is the husband of Sarah and the father of Isaac and Ishmael. God's covenant - that we will be a great people and inherit the land of Israel - begins with Abraham and is marked by his circumcision, the first in Jewish history. His Hebrew name is Avraham. and The first matriarch, wife of Abraham, and mother of Isaac, whom she birthed at the age of 90. Sarah, in Rabbinic tradition, is considered holy, beautiful, and hospitable. Many prayers, particularly the Amidah (the central silent prayer), refer to God as Magen Avraham – protector of Abraham. Many Jews now add: pokehd or ezrat Sarah – guardian or helper of Sarah. and help us to strengthen the Jewish people like stars in the Heavens.
Please God, I trust in you and believe in your strength. I come before you, my soul in my hands, begging in front of You. You are the creator of all things and the source of life. Please guide me and hear my pleading prayer of mercy for my soul and the soul of that which is not yet created.
Blessed are you God, who gives us our souls anew each day, and awakens our weary hearts.
