A Prayer for the Wonder of Our Bodies

 

  בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר יָצַר אֶת הָאָדָם בְּחָכְמָה וּבָרָא בוֹ נְקָבִים נְקָבִים חֲלוּלִים חֲלוּלִים. גָּלוּי וְיָדוּעַ לִפְנֵי כִּסֵּא  כְּבוֹדֶךָ שֶׁאִם יִפַתֵּחַ אֶחָד מֵהֶם אוֹ יִסָּתֵם אֶחָד מֵהֶם אִי אֶפְשָׁר לְהִתְקַיֵּם וְלַעֲמֹד לְפָנֶיךָ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי רוֹפֵא כָל בָּשָׂר וּמַפְלִיא לַעֲשׂוֹת

Barukh Atah Adonay Eloheynu Melekh Ha-olam, asher yatzar et ha-adam b'khokhmah u-vara vo n'kavim n'kavim khalulim khalulim. Galui v'yadua lif'nei khisei khvodekha she-im ippate'ach ekhad meyhem o yisatem ekhad meyhem i efshar l'hitkayem v'la'amod l'fanekha. Barukh atah Adonay rofey khol basar u-mafli la'asot.

Blessed are You, our God, Spirit of the World, who wisely formed the human body. You created it with openings here and vessels there. You know well that should even one of these stay opened, or one of those stay closed, we could not long survive. Blessed are You, Healer of all flesh, who makes the wonders of creation.
